Short Name:

MISR Level 3 Component Global Radiance Regional public Product covering a month V002

The MISR Level 3 Monthly Component Global Radiance Regional Product contains a statistical summary of spectral top-of-atmosphere Bidirectional Reflectance Factor for various subregion classifications; and a statistical summary of spectral expansive albedos for several sky classifications. This data product is a global summary of the Level 1 radiance parameters of interest averaged over a month and reported on a geographic grid, with resolution of 0.5 degree by 0.5 degree. 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 7 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.
