The AIRS Project and Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Service Center (GES DISC) are pleased to announce the release of Collection 5 of the AIRS Data Products.
Collection 5, derived from the AIRS Project’s latest software release, Version 5, contains many additions and refinements when compared to AIRS Collection 3 (Version 4) data products. These include enhanced Level 2 temperature data products over land and polar regions, first-time retrievals of carbon monoxide and methane, improvements to ozone retrievals, and improved error and quality flag parameterization overall. A summary of Collection 5 improvements is available at: http://disc.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/AIRS/documentation/notices/Notice.v5release.shtml#v005whatsnew
Collection 5 Data Processing
The GES DISC is already actively processing the AIRS forward stream for Collection 5. In addition, all the Level 1 AIRS products have been reprocessed, and reprocessing of higher level products (Levels 2 and 3) is well under way.
