NESDIS Microwave Integrated Retrieval System (MIRS) ATMS Sounding Products

Metadata Updated: March 11, 2021

This dataset contains temperature and humidity profiles from the NOAA Microwave Integrated Retrieval System (MIRS) using sensor data from the Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS) onboard the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) satellite. ATMS is a cross-track scanner with 22 channels in spectral bands from 23 GHz through 183 GHz. MIRS was developed by the NOAA/NESDIS Center for Satellite Application and Research (STAR) and is produced operationally at the NOAA/NESDIS Office of Satellite and Product Operations (OSPO). The sounding (SND) products file contains temperature and water vapor profiles at 850, 900 and 950 millibars. Quality control metrics and flags defining retrieval product quality are also provided. Each product file encompasses one 32-second granule of data, corresponding to 4 scan lines of ATMS data. The products are distributed in netCDF-4 file format with metadata attributes included.
