Atmospheric Sounding Service - Feng-Yun - 3 - Regional Data Service

Abstract:
EARS-VASS is composed of three products: Level 1b MWHS-II, MWTS-II, and IRAS. The data contain for all spectral channels and all Fields of view the calibrated and geolocated L1 data in BUFR format. The IRAS instrument is a classical infrared sounder with similar characteristics as the HIRS instrument which is flown on the METOP and NOAA satellites. Its 20 bands provide information on the vertical structure of the temperature and the water vapour in the cloud free atmosphere and above clouds. There is no IRAS instrument on FY-3D and the following satellites anymore. The MWHS-II instrument has the ability to perform the vertical atmosphere sounding also in cloudy conditions. Like the MHS instrument on METOP and NOAA satellites, it focuses on the water vapour sounding of the upper Troposphere but provides in addition also information on temperature profiles. The MWTS-II instrument provides information on temperature profiles and is comparable to AMSU-A. MWTS-II on FY-3C has failed.
