  • This Fundamental Climate Data Record (FDCR) of recalibrated brightness temperatures for the Advanced Very-High-Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) AVHRR/1, AVHRR/2 andAVHRR/3 with metrologically-traceable uncertainty estimates. Error covariance information is also provided.In this data set , in addition to relative reflectance for channels 1, 2 and 3A( when available) together with estimated independent, common and structured uncertainties are also provided. The FIDelity and Uncertainty in Climate data records from Earth Observations (FIDUCEO) project AVHRR FCDR improves on existing AVHRR level-1B data (such as that processed by NOAA or EUMETSAT): the calibration has been improved with a measurement function approach such that the data is of better quality (noise has been reduced, outliers have been filtered) the metrologically traceable uncertainties have been derived together with their associated effects cross-channel correlations and long-term correlation structures have now been calculated from the processed data and are being understood and used to improve data quality and consistency all the sensors are calibrated to a common reference (AATSR series).The products have been harmonised across the satellite series using Simultaneous (Nadir) Overpasses (SNOs). Full documentation including product user guide, tutorials, the scientific basis and relevant publications are available in the documentation.
