AMSR-E/Aqua L2A Global Swath Spatially-Resampled Brightness Temperatures
Entry ID: AE_L2A

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer - Earth Observing System (AMSR-E) instrument on the NASA Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua satellite provides global passive microwave measurements of terrestrial, oceanic, and atmospheric variables for the investigation of global water and energy cycles. The AMSR-E Level-2A product (AE_L2A) contains brightness temperatures at 6.9 GHz, 10.7 GHz, 18.7 ... View entire text
