A near-real time AIRS processing, distribution, and visualization system has been implemented at NOAA/NESDIS. The AQUA data is received in pipeline form directly from EDOS. This Level-0 data is reformatted, organized and then staged for Level-1B and Level-2 processing. The AIRS, AMSU, and HSB Level-1B radiances and brightness temperatures are subsampled, spatially and spectrally, and delivered to NWP centers in BUFR format within the given time requirement. The radiances and brightness temperatures, along with the Level-2 retrievals and science products, are matched to radiosondes and other instrument data and delivered to different scientific groups, including ORA. A full feature, highly interactive web based visualization system has been developed to both monitor the data processing stages and to view the most recent data that has been processed, as well as the global climatology. Details of the processing, distribution, and visualization of the AIRS products will be presented.
