One of AMSR-E Slow Rotation Data is revised.
Slow Rotation Data observed on August 23, 2013 (Scene ID is P1AME130823102MA) was revised because of 0.03 degree attitude error.

AMSR-E Slow Rotation Data

2013.12.2
AMSR-E Slow Rotation Data has been released
The AMSR-E automatically halted its observations and rotation on October 4, 2011 (UTC) due to increased rotation friction. After then NASA and JAXA began to analyze the situation and had been seeking for the way to restart AMSR-E observation. And on December 4, 2012 (UTC,) the AMSR-E restarted its observations and rotation with slow rotation (2 rotations per minute). JAXA completed initial radiometric and geometric correction for slow rotation data, and now AMSR-E Slow Rotation Data is available to public users.
This data is useful for users who cross-calibrate AMSR-E with other radiometers and who try to research using new feature by slow rotation and so on. This data is not JAXA's standard product. AMSR2 Standard Product is available for general user.
The detail is described in the following page.
