Product(s) or Data Impacted: NUCAPS Phase 4 Part 2 will be generating the improved version of Environmental Data Records (EDR) using the high resolution (HR) of CrIS Sensor Data Records (SDR) from the SNPP satellite. This implementation will overcome the shortfall of trace gases retrievals and an improved performance of thermodynamic variables such as Temperature, Water Vapor and Ozone profiles. NUCAPS trace gases include the Carbon Monoxide (CO), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), and Methane (CH4) data products are comparable with the equivalent heritage products from IASI. User needs to make changes to their existing PDA subscriptions to switch to high resolution products, or they might need to add additional subscriptions to get both nominal and high resolution products.

Impacts on Users and Significance: S-NPP NUCAPS improved version of NUCAPS Environmental Data Records using the high resolution (HR) of CrIS SDR
