CLPX-Satellite: SSM/I Brightness Temperature Grids
Entry ID: NSIDC-0144

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set includes Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) F-13 passive microwave brightness temperatures gridded to the geographic (lat/long) and UTM grids of the Cold Land Processes Field Experiment (CLPX) Large Regional Study Area (LRSA). Data are provided for passive microwave frequencies at 19, 22, 37 and 85 GHz, separated by ascending and descending satellite passes, and include ... View entire text
