[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The C-band scatterometers on ERS-1 and ERS-2 provided normalized radar cross section (sigma0) measurements of the Earth's surface. While originally designed for wind observation, scatterometer sigma0 measurements have proven useful in a variety of land and ice studies. To aid in the application of these measurements, Brigham Young University (BYU) prepared this data set consisting of enhanced ... View entire text
