This java loop containing simulated ABI channels from AIRS datasets is updated every three hours on the hour. The simulated ABI images show the spectral resolutions for several of the ABI bands. Of course, the spatial resolutions of the infrared ABI bands are much finer than the AIRS data. The AIRS datasets are from an interal direct broadcast source. Currently only full 6 minute AIRS granules are being processed, but future work will encompass full AIRS passes including less than full 6 minute AIRS granules. Since the AIRS direct broadcast is still considered experimental, the full HDF files are not currently available from SSEC. The full AIRS HDF files are available from the NASA DAAC. The AIRS binary image files and a Readme are available from the SSEC. You may also view an ABI abstract for AMS.
