Short Name:

JPSS-1 CrIS IMG: Collocated VIIRS level 1 / cloud mask statistical summary V2 (SNDRJ1CrISL1BIMG) at GES DISC

The Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) Level 1B Full Spectral Resolution (FSR) data files contain radiance measurements along with ancillary spacecraft, instrument, and geolocation data of the CrIS instrument on the Joint Polar Satellite System-1 (JPSS-1) platform. This platform is also know as NOAA-20 (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). The JPSS-1 mission with CrIS instrumentation is a follow-on to the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (SNPP) mission. The CrIS instrumentation and data processing system is nearly identical to that of the SNPP satellite. The FSR files have 2,223 channels (*2211 apodized channels): 637 (*633) shortwave channels from 3.9 to 4.7 microns (2555 to 2150 cm-1), 869 (*865) midwave channels from 5.7 to 8.05 microns (1752.5 to 1242.5 cm-1), and 717 (*713)longwave channels from 9.1 to 15.41 microns (1096.25 to 648.75 cm-1). Each CrIS field-of-regard (FOR) contains 9 field-of-views (FOVs) arranged in a 3X3 array. The Level 1B files contain 30 FORs in the cross track direction and 45 in the along track direction. Data products are constructed on six minute boundaries. The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) has 22 imaging and radiometric bands covering wavelengths from 0.41 to 12.5 microns. It provides the sensor data records for clouds, sea surface temperature, ocean color, and others. This IMG product primarily contains statistics of the VIIRS cloud mask and CiIS L1B data within each CrIS footprint.
