AIRS/Aqua L2 CO2 in the free troposphere (AIRS+AMSU) V005 (AIRX2STC) at GES DISC
Entry ID: AIRX2STC_005


Summary
Abstract: The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) is a grating spectrometer (R = 1200) 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. The AIRS Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Standard Retrieval Product consists of retrieved estimates of CO2, plus estimates of the errors associated with the retrieval. In contrast to AIRX2RET, the horizontal resolution of this standard product is about 110 km (1x1 degree). An AIRS granule has been set as 6 minutes of data, 15 footprints cross track by 22 lines along track.
