AIRS L1B HDFEOS to BUFR Format Utility v1.0 Release 25 March 2009
This package consists of software that will convert AIRS Level 1B Radiance HDFEOS files (AIRS.2009.02.06.176.L1B.AIRS_Rad.v5***.hdf) into Binary Universal Form for the Representation of meteorological data (BUFR) format. The output consists of selected channels at full spatial resolution. The software defaults to selecting the standard 324-channel set, but the user can substitute their own channel selection if you prefer.
This software encodes AIRS 1b files into BUFR using the same BUFR template as is used in the NOAA/NESDIS near real-time processing, (see http://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/smcd/spb/iosspdt/iosspdt.php).
This software was written by Nigel Atkinson, Met Office, Exeter, UK.
