AVHRR Processing: AVHRRMAP








AVHRRMAP is a software simlar to SeaWiFSMAP, optimised for AVHRR imagery. Below is the list of products it creates from Level 1 data:



Channel 1: Multichannel SST



Channel 2: AVHRR Band 1



Channel 3: AVHRR Band 2



Channel 4: Rayleigh Reflectance (used in atmospheric correction)



Channel 5: Band 1-Rayleigh



Channel 6: Band 2-Rayleigh



Channel 7: Brightness Temperature



Channel 8: Cloud Mask
The output is in the form of a .pix file, which must be georectified in the next step before it is ready for analysis.
