Band 21

Incomplete Calibration for Band 21


Band 21 calibration is imprecise at high temperatures.

Impact to L1B Data Set

This effect causes increased uncertainty in the brightness temperature due to the indirect nature of the calibration. Detector to detector striping exists, but is within specifications.

Estimated Impact to L2 Science Products

Science research will be seriously impacted until the calibration can be extended.
