Summary
Abstract: The Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer - Earth Observing System (AMSR-E) instrument on the NASA Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua satellite provides global passive microwave measurements of terrestrial, oceanic, and atmospheric variables for the investigation of water and energy cycles. Soil moisture and other land surface variables are key variables in understanding land surface hydrology and ... View entire text

Quality Differences between the LANCE NRT and standard products are currently under investigation. Known, but not yet quantified, differences include
• the ephemeris files (LANCE uses predicted ephemeris and standard products use definitive ephemeris) and
• standard product generation includes more sophisticated, dynamic cross calibration and ... View entire text
