NOAA Polar Orbiter Data User's Guide
This section provides specific information for each satellite. Each subsection contains a satellite's operational date range(s), any abnormalities associated with the satellite, tables for TOVS channel spectral response and HIRS/2 thermal band-correction coefficients, tables for AVHRR infrared channel central wave numbers as a function of temperature, and the spectral response curves for the AVHRR instrument. Many of these parameters are needed for calibration purposes.
Users should be aware that AVHRR Channel 3 data on TIROS-N series spacecraft have been very noisy due to an instrument problem and may be unusable at times.
