Description

RICMIRCM_4 is the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) Level 1B3 Radiometric Camera-by-camera Cloud Mask Product subset for the RICO region version 4. This file contains the Radiometric camera-by-camera Cloud Mask dataset over the RICO region. It is used during geophysical parameter retrievals to determine whether a scene is classified as clear or cloudy. A new parameter has been added to indicate dust over ocean. This version of the ESDT is used by MISR PGE 13. In the TOA/Cloud Product, RCCM is combined with stereoscopically derived cloud mask to 1) establish values of the Reflecting Level Reference Altitude, 2) determine how a scene is classified for choosing angular integration coefficients for establishing TOA albedos, and 3) calculate regional scene classifiers. Retrieval of Aerosol/Surface Product properties requires the absence of clouds, for retrieval assumptions to be valid.
