[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The SSMI is a seven-channel, four-frequency, dual-polarized, passive
microwave radiometer which measures the atmospheric, oceanic, and land
surface microwave brightness temperatures at 19.3, 22.2, 37.0 and
85.5 GHz. The orbit of the satellite is near-circular, sun-synchronous,
and near-polar with an inclination of 98.8 degrees. The ascending
equatorial crossing time for the F10 satellite is not ... View entire text
