Abstract

Advanced Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) mission was funded jointly by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change External Link (DECC) and the Australian Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research External Link (DIISR).

This dataset contains the Advanced Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) on ESA ENVISAT satellite Three Band Colour Composite Browse Product. These data are 3 band colour composite, quick-look images at coarse resolution.

This product has been derived from the Level 1B product and auxiliary data. The three bands are selected to best show the feature of the image, and it could vary between daylight time and night time. It also includes geolocation grid. The third reprocessing was done to implement updated algorithms, processors (the IPF Processor 6.05 from the IPF Processor 6.01), and auxiliary files.
