AIRS (Atmospheric InfraRed Sounder): Version 6 Level 2. AIRS Version 6 Level 2 data represent a significant improvement over AIRS Version 5 Level 2 products in terms of greater stability, yield, and quality. Several algorithmic improvements have been made by the AIRS Project in conjunction with the AIRS Science Team.

    In combination with the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) and the Humidity Sounder for Brazil (HSB), AIRS constitutes an innovative atmospheric sounding group of visible, infrared, and microwave sensors. This product is similar to AIRX2RET. However, it contains science retrievals that use the HSB.

About AIRS AIRS, the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder on NASA's Aqua satellite, gathers infrared energy emitted from Earth's surface and atmosphere globally, every day.

Its data provides 3D measurements of temperature and water vapor through the atmospheric column along with a host of trace gases, surface and cloud properties. is a high-resolution infrared sounder which main purpose being to acquire atmospheric temperature and humidity profiles from the surface upward to an altitude of 40 km.

This instrument uses cutting-edge infrared technology to create 3-dimensional maps of air and File Size: KB. • CubeSat Infrared Atmospheric Sounder (CIRAS) Selected for development by the NASA InVEST Project • CIRAS Selected by the CubeSat Launch Initiative.

The infrared atmospheric sounding interferometer (IASI) is a Fourier transform spectrometer based on the Michelson interferometer, associated with an integrated imaging system (IIS).

As part of the payload of the MetOp series of polar-orbiting meteorological satellites, there are currently two IASI instruments in operation: on MetOp-A (launched 19 October ) and on Met-Op B (launched   Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) Please complete the CFI NASA's LANCE Customer Satisfaction Survey if you would like to provide feedback on NASA's near real-time data and imagery distributed through LANCE, Worldview, Worldview Snapshots, GIBS and/or FIRMS.

Abstract. Atmospheric observations are often collected from irregularly distributed spatial locations. Numerical weather prediction models require a set of atmospheric state variables on an analysis grid mesh at a specified time, where the analysis grid mesh is a theoretical N-dimensional space with regularly distributed olation converts real-world data to the would-be-ideal grid.
