AATSR Geophysical product - full resolution (ATS_NR__2P)
The Level 2 full resolution geophysical product (ATS_NR__2P), also called the Gridded Surface Temperature (GST) Product, contains a single measurement data set the content of which is switchable, that is to say, the content of each pixel field will depend on the surface type. Specifically, the contents of the data fields will depend on the setting of the forward and nadir cloud flags and the land flag, as shown in the Table below.
Table 1 Switchable NR product contents
Note 1: Cloud Top Temperature is not implemented in the AATSR retrieval; the field is a placeholder and is filled with the nadir 11 micron Brightness Temperature
Note 2: Combined view will contain the nadir 11 micron Brightness Temperature if the forward view data was flagged as not valid
Note 3: Cloud Top Height is not implemented in the AATSR retrieval; the field is a placeholder and will be empty
The principal annotation data sets from the Level 1B product from which it is derived are also included in this product.
Further details on the Level 2 NR products are available in the AATSR Handbook.
