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 Advanced Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) on ESA ENVISAT satellite Average Surface Temperature (AST) product. These data are the Level 2 spatially averaged geophysical product derived from Level 1B product and auxiliary data.
There are two types of averages provided: 10 arcminute cells and 30 arcminute cells. All cells are present regardless of the surface type. Hence, the sea (land) cells would also have the land (sea) records even though these would be empty. Cells containing coastlines will have both valid land and sea records; the land (sea) record only contains averages from the land (sea) pixels. The third reprocessing was done to implement the updated algorithms, processors (the IPF Processor 6.05 from the IPF Processor 6.01), and auxiliary files.
