MISR TASC dataset V002

MIANTASC_2 is the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) Terrestrial Atmosphere and Surface Climatology (TASC) dataset version 2. It is produced by the MISR Science Computing Facility (SCF) and shipped to the Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) for generating MISR Level 2 products and consists of one HDF file and data set per month in HDF-EOS Grid format with a resolution of 1.0 x 1.0 degrees. 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.
