            description:  Advanced Along Track Scanning Radiometer Near Realtime Within the GHRSST (GODAE High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature) satellite data project, AATSR_NR is ENVISAT AATSR near real time 1km SSTskin data. "SSTskin is defined within GHRSST-PP as the radiometric temperature of the surface measured by an infrared radiometer operating in the 10 - 12 µm waveband. Physically it represents the temperature of the water at a depth of approximately 10 - 20 µm." (definition from http://www.medspiration.org/science/). Launched in March 2002 by the European Space Agency, ENVISAT is an advanced polar-orbiting Earth observation satellite which provides measurements of the atmosphere, ocean, land, and ice (see http://envisat.esa.int/).

            description:  Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-EOS NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua Satellite was launched from Vandenberg AFB, California on May 4, 2002 at 02:54:58 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time. The primary goal of Aqua, as the name implies, is to gather information about water in the Earth's system. The Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer - EOS (AMSR-E) is a one of the six sensors aboard the satellite Aqua. AMSR-E is passive microwave radiometer, modified from the Advanced Earth Observing Satellite-II (ADEOS-II) AMSR, designed and provided by NASDA (contractor: Mitsubishi Electric Corporation). It observes atmospheric, land, oceanic, and cryospheric parameters, including precipitation, sea surface temperatures, ice concentrations, snow water equivalent, surface wetness, wind speed, atmospheric cloud water, and water vapor.

            description:  Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer-3 The AVHRR-3 is a six channel scanning radiometer providing 3 solar channels in the visible-near infrared region and 3 thermal infrared channels. The AVHRR-3 has two one-micrometer wide channels between 10.3 and 12.5 micrometers. This latest version of AVHRR was first carried on NOAA-15 launched in May 1998 and subsequently in all current NOAA and MetOp platforms. Measuring the same view, this array of diverse wavelengths, after processing, permits multi spectral analysis for more precisely defining hydrologic, oceanographic, and meteorological parameters. Comparison of data from two channels is often used to observe features or measure various environmental parameters. The three channels operating entirely within the infrared band are used to detect the heat radiation from and hence, the temperature of land, water, sea surfaces, and the clouds above them.

            description:  Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Microwave Imager The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Microwave Imager (TMI)is a passive microwave sensor designed to provide quantitative rainfall information over a wide swath under the TRMM satellite. By carefully measuring the minute amounts of microwave energy emitted by the Earth and its atmosphere, TMI will be able to quantify the water vapor, the cloud water, and the rainfall intensity in the atmosphere. It is a relatively small instrument that consumes little power. This, combined with the wide swath and the good, quantitative information regarding rainfall make TMI the "workhorse" of the rain-measuring package on THE Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission. TMI is not a new instrument. It is based on the design of the highly successful Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) which has been flying continuously on Defense Meteorological Satellites since 1987. The TMI measures the intensity of radiation at five separate frequencies: 10.7, 19.4, 21.3, 37, 85.5 GHz. These frequencies are similar to those of the SSM/I, except that TMI has the additional 10.7 GHz channel designed to provide a more-linear response for the high rainfall rates common in tropical rainfall. The other main improvement that is expected from TMI is due to the improved ground resolution. This improvement, however, is not the result of any instrument improvements, but rather a function of the lower altitude of TRMM 218 miles (350 kilometers) compared to 537 miles (860 kilometers) of SSM/I). TMI has a 487 mile (780-kilometer) wide swath on the surface. The higher resolution of TMI on TRMM, as well as the additional 10.7 GHz frequency, will make TMI a better instrument than its predecessors. (From: http://trmm.gsfc.nasa.gov/overview_dir/tmi.html)
