AIRS

Atmospheric Infrared Sounder

Overview

The NASA Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) flies on the Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua research satellite. AIRS is the first of a new generation of high spectral resolution sounders that provide very high quality measurements. These improved measurements from AIRS will lead to more accurate surface and atmospheric products and weather forecasts.

SSEC scientists are members of the AIRS science team and have developed algorithms to make the data useful, helped calibrate the instrument and validate its data, and written software for processing AIRS data from direct broadcast facilities.
