From 9:00 a.m. to noon (USA Mountain Time) Wednesday October 5, AMSR-E, Aquarius, IceBridge, ICESat/GLAS, MODIS, NISE, and SMAP data will not be available for ordering due to system maintenance.
NOTE: Reverb will be decommissioned in the coming months and replaced with Earthdata Search. All links to Reverb will be removed at that time.
AMSR-E/Aqua L2B Global Swath Ocean Products derived from Wentz Algorithm, Version 2
The Level-3 daily product (AE_DyOcn), weekly product (AE_WkOcn), and monthly product (AE_MoOcn) include SST, near-surface wind speed, columnar water vapor, and columnar cloud liquid water over oceans in a 0.25 degree by 0.25 degree grid, generated from AE_Ocean.

A typical AMSR-E swath width consists of approximately 2000 scans, with 243 pixels per scan for the 6.9 GHz to 36.5 GHz channels, and 486 pixels per scan for the 89.0 GHz channel.
In 2002, the AMSR-E science team discovered distortion along the outer 23 to 24 pixels of each swath. Some... read more
