Short Name:

Aqua AIRS Level 3 Spectral Outgoing Longwave Radiation (OLR) Monthly

This L3 Spectral Outgoing Longwave Radiation (OLR) is derived using the AIRS radiances to compute spectral fluxes based on an algorithm developed by Xianglei Huang at the University of Michigan. It uses data from the Atmospheric InfraRed Sounder (AIRS) instrument on the EOS-Aqua spacecraft. The Aqua AIRS Huang Level-3 Spectral OLR product contains OLR parameters derived from the AIRS version 6 data: all-sky and clear-sky OLR both spectrally resolved at 10 cm-1 bandwidth and integrated to a single value per grid square. This is monthly product on a 2x2 degree latitude/longitude grid.
