1B11_CSI: Microwave Brightness Temperature (TMI)Entry ID: GES_DISC_TRMM_CSI_SCSS_1B11_V6
Abstract: Satellite Coincidence Subsetted Intermediate Data (CSI): A subset of 1B11,
calibrated TMI (10.65, 19.35, 21, 37, and 85.5 GHz) brightness temperatures at
5 to 45 km resolution over a 760 km swath from a TRMM pass over over the SCSMEX

Quality Not all stations have water quality data or are complete.
Horizontal positions were established with the use of GPS equipment.
Automatic samplers are used at three locations to collect water samples for nutrient analysis. Every 18 hours a 120 ml water sample is pumped into a pre-preserved (1:1 sulfuric acid) composite bottle that is made up of four pumping sessions over a ... 3-day period. Field visits to collect sample bottles are made every 24 days. During a routine site visit, representative water samples are collected following a multiple vertical sampling approach quarterly at each station. Samples are collected and analyzed at the USGS National Water Quality Laboratory for total and dissolved nutrients. Water samples collected with auto-samplers are analyzed for total nitrogen (TKN) and total phosphorus (TP) concentrations. Point samples are collected to assess the potential of bio-fouling of the sampling port during monthly deployments and to compare the point data to the multiple vertical sampling data (i.e. representative data).
Access Constraints None
