Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR2)

NRT AMSR2 products are generated within three hours of observation, using preliminary algorithms provided by the NASA-funded US AMSR2 Science Team, with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency NRT Level 1 R (L1R, resampled brightness temperatures) as input. NASA standard products are available from NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC).

Other Sources of AMSR2 Data Products:

  • The JAXA AMSR Science Team generates its own suite of AMSR2 products.
  • Remote Sensing Systems generates an extensive suite of intercalibrated products (columnar water vapor and cloud liquid water over oceans, ocean wind speed, sea surface temperature) from many passive microwave satellite instruments. View their AMSR2 ocean products.
