IASI Trace Gases - Metop

Abstract:
The main objective of the Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI) is to provide high resolution atmospheric emission spectra to derive temperature and humidity profiles with high spectral and vertical resolution and accuracy. Additionally it is used for the determination of trace gases, as well as land and sea surface temperature, emissivity and cloud properties. The Trace Gases (TRG) product contains the total column amounts of atmospheric trace gases: N2O, CO, CH4, CO2, retrieved from IASI sounder measurements. The products are provided at the single IASI footprint resolution (which is about 12 km with a spatial sampling of about 25 km at Nadir). This product is available via the Data Centre as the IASI Combined Sounding Products: EO:EUM:DAT:METOP:IASSND02
