Paper Abstract

The current performance of AIRS radiometric, spectral, and spatial calibration algorithms are described. Radiometric accuracy is validated to tenths of a kelvin. Spectral stability is better than 0.5% of the spectral response function FWHM. Geolocation accuracy is accurate to approximately 2 km at nadir. An algorithm has been implemented to correct for space views contaminated by the moon. Planned algorithm improvements include correcting the 2 km bias in geolocation.
