AIRS/Aqua Level 3 Pentad quantization in physical units (AIRS+AMSU+HSB) V005

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

AIRS/Aqua Level 3 pentad quantization product in physical units (With HSB).

        The quantization products (QP) are distributional summaries derived from the Level-2 standard retrieval products (of swath type) to provide a more comprehensive set of statistical summaries than the traditional means and standard deviation. The QP products combine the Level 2 standard data parameters over grid cells of 5 x 5 deg spatial extent for temporal periods of five days. Pentads always start on the 1st, 6th, 11th, 16th, 21st, and 26th days of the month and may contain as few as 3 days of data or as much as 6 days. They preserve the multivariate distributional features of the original data and so provide a compressed data set that more accurately describes the disparate atmospheric states that is in the original Level-2 swath data set.

        The geophysical parameters are: Air Temperature and Water Vapor profiles (11 levels/layers), Cloud fraction (vertical distribution).

        (The Shortname for this product is AIRH3QP5).
