CLPX-Ground: Ground-Based Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) Radar
Entry ID: NSIDC-0164

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set is comprised of FMCW radar measurements, which are sensitive to electromagnetic discontinuities in the snowpack, made during the 2002 and 2003 Cold Land Processes Field Experiment (CLPX). The microwave interaction with a snow pack was measured using broadband frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar operating at between 2 and 18 GHz, incorporating the following frequencies: ...
