AIRI2CCF_NRT data sample product


Cloud-Cleared NRT Radiances are calibrated, geolocated AIRS infrared radiances. This data set is produced by the same core science algorithms as in the regular science data production, but using predicted ephemeris in place of definitive ephemeris data and without using optinal dynamic inputs; AIRABRAD for previous and next 6 minutes and  NOAA Global Forecast data. The advantage of NRT data is its fast turnaround time, generally available within 3 hours of observations globally. The NRT data sets stay for about 7 days from the time they are generated and can be utilized in regional weather forecast campaign.

General information on AIRS Cloud-Cleared Radiances products is found in AIRI2CCF.
