CAMEX-3 ATMOSPHERIC EMITTED RADIANCE INTERFEROMETER (AERI) V1

The Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (AERI) was used to make atmospheric temperature and moisture retrievals. AERI provides absolutely calibrated radiances which can be used for forward calculation comparisons of radiosonde and LIDAR (for CAMEX-3, the SRL) profiles and provides a reference to the airborne and ground based remote sensing instruments. Additionally, AERI radiances contain valuable temperature and water vapor information which can be used to retrieve planetary boundary layer thermodynamics. The University of Wisconsin-Madison, Space Science and Engineering Center was responsible for the AERI data collection during CAMEX-3 campaign.
