This dataset contains level 1C data products from the Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI) instrument onboard the Eumetsat EPS Metop-C satellite.

IASI was designed to measure the infrared spectrum emitted by the earth. IASI provides infrared soundings of the temperature profiles in the troposphere and lower stratosphere, moisture profiles in the troposphere, as well as some of the chemical components playing a key role in the climate monitoring, global change and atmospheric chemistry. the IASI L1c product contains infra-red radiance spectra at the 0.5cm-1 resolution, covering the range between 645.0 cm-1 and 2760 cm-1. Please note an erratum has been raised in relation to 2017 data please see the Ten-Year Assessment of IASI Radiance and Temperature in the documentation section.

This data set contains the original processed data.. in the following directories based on processing algorithm. Please see information under the process tab for further information.

This data has been provided by EUMETSAT to CEDA to support access to active scientists from the following institutions only
