AIRS Services

The GES DISC offers subsetting and format conversion tools through Mirador. Depending upon the product the files can be spatially subset, or subset by variable, channel, or quality. The files can also be converted to netCDF for use with tools such as IDV, Grads, Ferret, or IDL.

 

AIRS File Subsetting Service

Users can limit number of files for download by specifying appropriate spatial and temporal constraints in search engines like Mirador.  The total download size can be further reduced by choosing a subset of variables, channels within each file through the subsetting service.  AIRS file subsetting service is provided as a part of the data ordering process through the Mirador search engine.  The table below shows the available subsetting options for AIRS Level-1B and Level-2 products.

AIRS data format conversion tool

GES DISC provides data format conversion service such that users will be able to download files in netCDF format as oppose to the original HDFEOS format. The netCDF files adhere to the CF-1 compliant and can easily be imported into applications or application environment such as IDV, Grads, Ferret or IDL.  Like the subset service mentioned above, it is a part of the data ordering process through Mirador search engine.

Data Quality Screening Service (DQSS)

The DQSS service available through Mirador allows users to download files identical to the original data files but which have have data values that do not meet their quality selection criteria replaced with fill values.
