Description:

By creating infrared images of the Earth with a spatial resolution of one kilometer, the Along Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR) instruments are beneficial for land, atmosphere, water, and Cryosphere scientific studies. After learning about the sensitivities and accuracies of the ATSR instruments, students and educators can view a presentation describing the usefulness of the collected data. The website provides abundant information dealing with data products, documentation, calibrations, validations, and more. Researchers can discover how to obtain ATSR data and can view various Average Sea Surface Temperature (ASST) maps. Everyone can enjoy samples of images collected including the Grain Coast in Western Africa and cloud formations around the South Sandwich Islands in the South Atlantic.
