AMSU-A Level 1B - Metop - Global

The Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit-A (AMSU-A) is a 15-channel microwave radiometer that is used for measuring global atmospheric temperature profiles and will provide information on atmospheric water in all of its phases (with the exception of small ice particles, which are transparent at microwave frequencies). AMSU-A will provide information even in cloudy conditions. AMSU-A measures Earth radiance at frequencies (in GHz) as listed under the instrument channel information. Metop-A data are available in the Data Centre up to 15/11/2021.
