The FIDelity and Uncertainty in Climate data records from Earth Observations (FIDUCEO) project Fundamental Climate Data Record of brightness temperatures for the High-resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder (HIRS) contains brightness temperatures for HIRS for all editions of HIRS/2, HIRS/2I, HIRS/3, and HIRS/4 satellite instruments. It contains HIRS l1b data as available from the NOAA Comprehensive Large Array-Data Stewardship System (CLASS). Geolocation and calibration information is available in the files. For more information and relevant product guides please see the documentation section. This data set was used as input to the Fundamental Climate Data Record of recalibrated brightness temperatures for the High-resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder (HIRS) with uncertainties, 1978 - 2016, v1.0 dataset.
