MISR CGGRP

Component Global Georectified Radiance Product

The MISR Level 3 Products are global or regional maps of select parameters from the Level 2 products and associated covariances reported on various geographic grids depending on the data product. Parameters from multiple orbits are combined to make complete Level 3 global maps at daily (D), monthly (M), quarterly (Q), and yearly (Y) time scales and regional maps associated with field campaigns at daily and monthly time scales.

First Look (products ending in F): Initial data processed with apriori boundary conditions. Once actual conditions are obtained (about 3 months), the data are reprocessed to final product.
