MERIS Product Quality Reporting

    MERIS Cyclic Reports
    MERIS NRT Products Availability Status
    MERIS spectral campaign documentation - unavailability of nominal data
    MERIS Smile Effect Characterization and Correction
    MERIS Absolute Geolocation Status
    MERIS Wavelength and Irradiances Model
    MERIS nominal Spectral Response Functions: centered at nominal wavelengths with camera-averaged widths
    Nominal Spectral Response Functions (SRFs) computed from MERIS Spectral Model 2004 - the official one for 2nd and 3rd reprocessings - but forcing central wavelengths to their theoretical values, hence compatible with the Level 2 processing algorithms and look-up-tables. Spectral characteristics used to compute the SRFs other than response centering, namely those defining the SRF of individual CCD cells, have been obtained by averaging over cameras.
