AirMSPI_ORACLES_Ellipsoid-projected_Georegistered_Radiance_Data

AirMSPI verison 6 ellipsoid-projected georegistered radiance product acquired during the NASA ORACLES flight campaign Jul-Oct 2016

AirMSPI_ORACLES_Ellipsoid-projected_Georegistered_Radiance_Data are AirMSPI Ellipsoid-projected georegistered radiance product acquired during the NASA ObseRvations of Aerosols above CLouds and their intEractionS (ORACLES) flight campaign. AirMSPI Level 1B2 products contain radiometric and polarimetric images of clouds, aerosols, and the surface of the Earth. In particular, products contain map-projected data at 8 wavelengths: 355, 380, 445, 470, 555, 660, 865, and 935 nm. The data products include radiance, time, solar zenith, solar azimuth, view zenith, and view azimuth for all spectral bands. Wavelengths for which polarization information is available (470, 660, and 865 nm) also include the Stokes parameters Q and U, as well as degree of linear polarization (DOLP) and angle of linear polarization (AOLP). Q, U, and AOLP are reported relative to both the scattering- and view meridional planes. Files are distributed in HDF-EOS-5 format. This release of AirMPSI data contains all targets acquired during the ObseRvations of Aerosols above CLouds and their intEractionS (ORACLES) flight campaign, including the check-out and transit flights. ORACLES was based out of Walvis Bay, Namibia and focused on the South Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Namibia and Angola. AirMSPI was acquired from July 28 to October 6, 2016.
