    The AIRS as a key facility instrument on the EOS Aqua satellite, working together with AMSU (Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit) and HSB (Humidity Sounder for Brazil), forms a complementary sounding system for NASA’s Earth Observing System (Aumann et al. ). The AMSU-A is primarily a temperature sounder co-aligned with the AIRS. AIRS Version 6 L3 User Guide AMSU-A and HSB (a variant of AMSU-B). Because HSB failed less than a year into the mission, this set is available only for a few months.

    AIRS and HSB, both with degree footprints, relative to the AMSU, with a degree footprint are illustrated in Figure 1. The on-orbit verification of this special alignment is discussed by Lambrigtsen et al. (this issue). The AIRS/AMSU/HSB data will be used to improve numerical weather predictions and to. The atmospheric infrared sounder (AIRS) is one of six instruments flying on board NASA's Aqua satellite, launched on May 4, The instrument is designed to support climate research and improve weather forecasting.. Working in combination with its partner microwave instrument, the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU-A), AIRS observes the global water and energy cycles, climate variation.

AIRS Version 6 L3 User Guide Page 1 AIRS/AMSU/HSB Version 6 Level 3 Product User Guide Edited by: Baijun Tian Contributions by: Baijun Tian, Evan Manning, Eric Fetzer, Ed Olsen, and Sun Wong Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology Joel Susskind and Lena Iredell Goddard Space Flight Center, NASA 27 November Version Three channels are located near GHz, while the fourth is a window channel at GHz.

AIRS/AMSU/HSB book HSB is identical to AMSU-B, which is operated by NOAA on its most recent POES satellites, but HSB lacks the fifth channel (89 GHz) of AMSU-B.

Like AIRS, HSB is a cross-track scanner, and it has only one parabolic scan antenna. AIRS/AMSU/HSB on the Aqua mission: Design, science objective, data products, and processing systems Article (PDF Available) in IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing 41(2).

Several algorithmic improvements have been made by the AIRS Project and the AIRS Science Team. A complete list of noteworthy changes from Version 5 to Version 6 is provided in the document AIRS/AMSU/HSB Version 6 Changes from Version 5.

forecasting centers. AIRS, together with the AMSU and HSB microwave radiometers, will achieve global retrieval accuracy of better than 1 K in the lower troposphere under clear and partly cloudy conditions.

This paper presents an overview of the science objectives, AIRS/AMSU/HSB data products, retrieval algorithms, and the ground-data processing. Abstract: The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder/Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit/Humidity Sounder for Brazil (AIRS/AMSU/HSB) instrument suite onboard Aqua observes infrared and microwave radiances twice daily over most of the planet.

AIRS offers unprecedented radiometric accuracy and signal to noise throughout the thermal infrared. Observations from the combined suite of AIRS, AMSU, and HSB Cited by: AIRS geophysical retrievals are either the result of the combined infrared and microwave data product, a microwave-only standard product, or an AIRS-only data product.

AIRS data products have been and continue to be made using various combinations of the AIRS, AMSU and HSB instruments (HSB ceased operation on February 5, ).

AIRS/Aqua L3 Daily Standard Physical Retrieval (AIRS+AMSU+HSB) 1 degree x 1 degree V (AIRH3STD) at GES DISC The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) is a grating spectrometer (R = ) aboard the second Earth Observing System (EOS) polar-orbiting platform, EOS Aqua.

It is comprised of a space-based hyperspectral infrared instrument (AIRS) and two multichannel microwave instruments, the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU-A) and the Humidity Sounder for Brazil (HSB). The AIRS instrument suite along with several other instruments was launch aboard NASA's Earth Observing System Aqua satellite on May 4, AIRS/AMSU/HSB Version 6 Changes from Version 5 Page 9 Stochastic Cloud Clearing/Neural Network First Guess State The First Guess State is derived in a two-step process (Blackwell, et al., “AIRS/AMSU Atmospheric Profile Retrievals Using Stochastic Cloud Clearing and a Neural Network,” submitted to IEEE TGRS).

Olsen Contributions by: Denis Elliott, Eric Fetzer, Evan Manning Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology and John Blaisdell, Lena Iredell, SAIC/GSFC, Joel Susskind, GSFC Goddard Space Flight Center, NASA 27 November   Abstract: The assimilation of Atmospheric InfraRed Sounder, Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit-A, and Humidity Sounder for Brazil (AIRS/AMSU/HSB) data by Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) centers is expected to result in improved forecasts.

Specially tailored radiance and retrieval products derived from AIRS/AMSU/HSB data are being prepared for NWP centers. AIRS/AMSU/HSB Version 6: Level 3 Product User Guide Published on Mar 7, Level 3 product user guide for the version 6 data release for Atmospheric Infrared Sounder.

Level 1B and Level 1C Data Products Calibrated and geolocated radiances. The Level 1B data product contains measurements of the radiation in Earth's atmosphere measured for all channels. It contains geolocated and calibrated infrared, microwave and visible/near-infrared radiances at instrument spatial resolution along with Quality Assessment (QA) data.

AIRS/AMSU/HSB should be achievable. CrIS, like AIRS, is an advanced IR sounder that will fly on the NPP mission scheduled for launch inas well as on NPOESS, the future low earth orbiting operational satellite series.

CrIS will be accompanied by ATMS, a microwave sounder with characteristics similar to those of AMSU A/HSB. CrIS/ATMS is. The AIRS/AMSU data are generated at the km granularity of AMSU, utilizing a single AMSU spectrum and nine spectra of AIRS (Lambrigtsen and Lee ).

The monthly AIRS/AMSU water vapor retrievals used here are the version 5, monthly gridded (level 3) product without HSB with a spatial resolution of 1° × 1°, which are derived from the level. Another is based on the combined AIRS, AMSU, and HSB observations. Since the HSB instrument stopped working very early in the mission (February ) the AIRS+AMSU+HSB retrieval is the shortest time series of the three flavors.

Welcome to NASA's EOSDIS. NASA's Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) is a key core capability in NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems Program for archiving and distributing Earth science data from multiple missions to users.

AIRS, together with the AMSU and HSB microwave radiometers, will achieve global retrieval accuracy of better than 1 K in the lower troposphere under clear and partly cloudy conditions. This paper presents an overview of the science objectives, AIRS/AMSU/HSB data products, retrieval algorithms, and the ground-data processing concepts.
