MISR Level 3 Global Cloud public Product in netCDF format covering a day V002

MI3DCLDN_2 is the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) Level 3 Global Cloud public Product in netCDF format covering a day version 2. It contains the public MISR Level 3 Global Cloud public Product in netCDF format covering a day and is a global summary of the Level 1 and Level 2 cloud parameters of interest averaged over a year and reported on a geographic grid, with resolution of 0.5 degree by 0.5 degree as well as 2. 5 degree by 2. 5 degree. The MISR instrument consists of nine pushbroom cameras which measure radiance in four spectral bands. Global coverage is achieved in nine days. The cameras are arranged with one camera pointing toward the nadir, four cameras pointing forward, and four cameras pointing aftward. It takes seven minutes for all nine cameras to view the same surface location. The view angles relative to the surface reference ellipsoid, are 0, 26.1, 45.6, 60.0, and 70.5 degrees. The spectral band shapes are nominally Gaussian, centered at 443, 555, 670, and 865 nm.
