Extended AVHRR Polar Pathfinder Fundamental Climate Data Record (APPx CDR)

The Extended AVHRR Polar Pathfinder (APP-x) version-2 Thematic Climate Data Record (CDR) includes surface temperature, surface albedo, surface and the Top Of the Atmosphere (TOA) shortwave and longwave radiative fluxes, cloud properties (amount, phase, particle size, optical depth,top pressure and temperature, surface and TOA radiative effect), and ice thickness and age. The APP-x CDR has twice daily data at local solar times of 14 and 04(02) for the Arctic(Antarctic) at a spatial resolution of 25 km for both poles.
