AVHRR Polar Pathfinder Twice-Daily 25 km EASE-Grid Composites
Entry ID: NSIDC-0094


Summary
Abstract:

This data set is no longer available because of errors in the data. See the http://nsidc.org/data/docs/daac/nsidc0094_avhrr_25km_abstract.gd.ht...>Error Sources section of the data set documentation for details.

NSIDC recommends using the Extended AVHRR Polar Pathfinder (APP-x) data set instead. The ... View entire text

Quality Channel data are accurate to within approximately +/- 0.2 percent based on sensor noise level of 0.4 data number (DN). Temperatures are accurate to within approximately 2 degrees Kelvin. Relative albedos in adjacent grid cells are accurate to within approximately 5 percent. However, absolute albedo values are approximate. Accuracies for the products are difficult to determine, given the limited ... View entire text
