Entry ID: UAEMRDAE_4
Aerosols
Description

UAEMRDAE_4 is the Multi-angle Imaging SpecrtroRadiometer (MISR) Level 3 Component Global Aerosol Product covering a day subset for the UAE region version 4. It contains a statistical summary of column aerosol 555 nanometer optical depth, and a monthly aerosol compositional type frequency histogram. This data product is a regional summary of the Level 2 aerosol parameters of interest averaged over a day and reported on a geographic grid, with resolution of 0.5 degree by 0.5 degree. The MISR instrument consists of nine pushbroom cameras which measure radiance in four spectral bands. Global coverage is achieved in nine days. The cameras are arranged with one camera pointing toward the nadir, four cameras pointing forward, and four cameras pointing aftward. It takes seven minutes for all nine cameras to view the same surface location. The view angles relative to the surface reference ellipsoid, are 0, 26.1, 45.6, 60.0, and 70.5 degrees. The spectral band shapes are nominally Gaussian, centered at 443, 555, 670, and 865 nm.
