Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR)

MISR NRT Data and Information

The Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) instrument aboard NASA’s Terra satellite views Earth with cameras pointed at nine different viewing angles. In addition to improving our understanding of the fate of sunlight in Earth’s environment, MISR data can distinguish different types of clouds, aerosol particles, and surfaces. Data on cloud motion vectors (winds) and radiances are available through LANCE generally within 90 to 120 minutes of satellite observation.
