Summary
Abstract: ABSTRACT: Microwave surface and precipitation products (EDRs) are produced by Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program's (DMSP) Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) instrument aboard DMSP-15 satellite. Product contains maps for the southern hemisphere that conform to a polar stereographic projection true at 60 degrees latitude.

CURRENTNESS REFERENCE: ground condition

SPATIAL DATA ORGANIZATION INFORMATION
Direct Spatial Reference: Raster
Raster Object Type: Grid Cell
Row Count: 512
Column Count: 512

Electronic download (FTP) of the data is free. There is a fee for copies of data on physical media. Optical disks are $25.00 per unit and magnetic tape is $100 per unit. Price does not include additional service and handling costs.


Purpose: PURPOSE: To supplement infrared and visible satellite measurements with microwave measurements.
