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 on ESA ENVISAT satellite (AATSR) Gridded Brightness Temperature/Reflectance (GBTR) Product. These data are the Level 1B product that consists of Top of Atmosphere (TOA) radiance measurements and brightness temperatures at full resolution for both the nadir and forward views.

The product is calibrated for instrumental and atmospheric effects and re-sampled to a fixed grid aligned to the sub-satellite track. This product is derived from the Level 0 product and auxiliary data, and serves as the input data for all Level 2 products. 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.
