CrIS Sensor Data Records - JPSS

Abstract:
The Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS), a Fourier transform spectrometer with 2211 spectral channels, produces high-resolution, three-dimensional temperature, pressure, and moisture profiles. These profiles are used to enhance weather forecasting models, and to facilitate both short- and long-term weather forecasting. Over longer timescales, they will help improve understanding of climate phenomena such as El Niño and La Niña. The product also includes cloud information for the CrIS FoVs derived from the VIIRS instrument onboard Suomi NPP.
