MISR Level 3 Component Global Aerosol Regional public Product covering a day V002

MI3DAER_2 is the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) Level 3 Component Global Aerosol Regional public Product covering a day version 2. It contains a statistical summary of column aerosol 555 nanometer optical depth, and a monthly aerosol compositional type frequency histogram. This data product is a global summary of the Level 2 aerosol parameters of interest averaged over a day and reported on a geographic grid, with resolution of 0.5 degree by 0.5 degree. Data collection for this product is complete. The data are for distinct regions associated with associated field campaigns. 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.
