Summary
Abstract: The Nimbus-7 Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) observed the
Earth in five frequencies at 6.6, 10.7, 18, 21, and 37 GHz in both
horizontal and vertical polarization. Each frequency has a bandwidth
of 250 MHz. The instrument was turned off on August 21, 1987
temporarily and was permanently turned off on July 6, 1988. The SMMR
instrument provided ... View entire text
