CLPX-Ground: Ground Based Passive Microwave Radiometer (GBMR-7) Data
Entry ID: NSIDC-0165

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data set contains brightness temperature observations of the snow cover at the Local Scale Observation Site (LSOS) of the Cold Land Processes Field Experiment (CLPX) in Fraser, Colorado, USA. Measurements were taken at 18.7, 23.8, 36.5, and 89 GHz (vertical/horizontal polarization) using a ground-based passive microwave radiometer (GBMR-7). Three different measurement techniques were used: 1) ... View entire text
