Entry Title: MISR L2 TOA/Cloud Stereo Product subset for the ICARTT region V002
Entry ID: CARMITST_2
CARMITST_2 is the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) Level 2 TOA/Cloud Stereo Product subset for the ICARTT region version 2. It contains the Stereoscopically Derived Cloud Mask (SDCM), cloud winds, Reflecting Level Reference Altitude (RLRA), with associated data over the ICARTT_2004 theme. This data product is intended to be used to study, on a regional basis, the effects of different types of cloud fields on the spectral solar radiance and irradiance reflected to space, including spatial and temporal dependences.
