MISR Ancillary Radiometric Product V002

MIANCARP_2 is the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) Ancillary Radiometric Product version 2. It is composed of 4 files covering instrument characterization data, pre-flight calibration data, in-flight calibration data, and configuration parameters. 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.
