AIRIBRAD_NRT_BUFR_005

AIRS/Aqua L1B Near Real Time (NRT) Infrared (IR) geolocated and calibrated radiances in BUFR format V005 (AIRIBRAD_NRT_BUFR) at GES DISC

Version 005 eng NRT
  • Abstract
    This product is a 324-channel subset of the AIRIBRAD_NRT_005 product in which the AMSU footprints from AIRABRAD_NRT_005 product are also included and converted to binary Universal Form for the Representation of meteorological data (BUFR). The AIRS and AMSU Level 1B products differ from routine processing in 2 ways to meet the three hour latency requirements of the Land Atmosphere NRT Capability Earth Observing System (LANCE): (1) The NRT granules are produced without previous or subsequent granules if those granules are not available within 5 minutes, (2) the predictive ephemeris/attitude data are used rather than the definitive ephemeris/attitude. The consequences of these differences are described in the AIRS Near Real Time (NRT) data products document. 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.
  • Purpose
    The Near Real Time (NRT) product is for users whose primary interest is the low latency for data availability. While standard data products are available within 3 days of observation, NRT data are usually available within 3 hours of observation.
