SAGE III (Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment) measures the vertical distribution of aerosols, ozone, and water vapor in the upper troposphere through the stratosphere. Visit the SAGE III data table for product details.

MISR (Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer) measures top-of-atmosphere radiances in four spectral bands from each of nine pushbroom imaging cameras oriented at different angles along-track. Visit the MISR data table for product details.

CERES (Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System) measures Earth's radiation budget and atmospheric radiation from the top of the atmosphere using a broadband scanning radiometer. Visit the CERES data table for product details.

MOPITT (Measurements Of Pollution In The Troposphere) measures carbon monoxide and methane in the troposphere using correlation spectroscopy with pressure modulated and length modulated gas cells. Recently released MOPITT products consist of Level 2 data.
