Description:
Abstract:
The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) is a facility instrument aboard the second Earth Observing System (EOS) polar-orbiting platform, EOS Aqua. In combination with the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) and the Humidity Sounder for Brazil (HSB), AIRS constitutes an innovative atmospheric sounding group of visible, infrared, and microwave sensors. AIRS data will be generated continuously. Global coverage will be obtained twice daily (day and night) on a 1:30pm sun synchronous orbit from a 705-km altitude. An AIRS granule has been set as 6 minutes of data, 30 footprints cross track by 45 lines along track. The AIRS Granule Map Product consists of images of granule coverage in PDF and JPG format. The images are daily ones but updated every 6 minutes to capture any new available granule. Granules are assembled by ascending, descending, in north and south hemisphere, and the maps are in global cylindrical projection and satellite projection for better view. (The Shortname for this product is AIRXAMAP).
