Product Description

AIRS Standard Temperature Product

The atmospheric temperature profile is reported on the standard pressure levels that are above the altitude of the highest topography in the retrieval FOV. Temperature, pressure, and geopotential height are reported at the surface, at the tropopause, and through the column. All standard temperature products are level quantities, which means that the values are reported at fixed pressure levels.
