Abstract

Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR) 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 Along-Track Scanning Radiometer on ESA ERS-2 satellite (ATSR-2) Gridded Surface Temperature (GST) Product. These data are the Level 2 full spatial resolution (approximately 1 km by 1 km) geophysical product derived from Level 1B product and auxiliary data. The contents of the pixel fields, which are a mixture of Top of Atmosphere (TOA) and surface brightness temperature/radiance, are switch-able depending on the surface type. The third reprocessing was done to implement updated algorithms, processors, and auxiliary files.
