MISR Geometric Parameters V002

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

MIB2GEOP_2 is the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) Geometric Parameters Version 2 product. It contains the Geometric Parameters which measure the sun and view angles at the reference ellipsoid. MISR itself is an instrument designed to view Earth with cameras pointed in 9 different directions. As the instrument flies overhead, each piece of Earth's surface below is successively imaged by all 9 cameras, in each of 4 wavelengths (blue, green, red, and near-infrared). The goal of MISR is to improve our understanding of the fate of sunlight in Earth environment, as well as distinguish different types of clouds, particles and surfaces. Specifically, MISR monitors the monthly, seasonal, and long-term trends in three areas: 1) amount and type of atmospheric particles (aerosols), including those formed by natural sources and by human activities; 2) amounts, types, and heights of clouds, and 3) distribution of land surface cover, including vegetation canopy structure.
