MISR Level 2 Near Real Time Products

Level 2 Near Real Time

MISR Level 2 Near Real Time (NRT) Products are geophysical measurements derived in near real time from Level 1 NRT products. Product data is organized in 10-50 minute sessions representing a portion of a single MISR orbit. Parameters are projected onto a Space-Oblique Mercator (SOM) map grid and defined throughout the 380 km wide MISR swath. At present, available Level 2 NRT products include two formats of the MISR Level 2 Cloud Motion Vector (CMV) product, comprising height-resolved cloud motions representative of the wind field. The CMV product is analogous to the Level 3 CMV product offered in standard production.

Near Real Time products are available on a 30 day rolling deletion window.
