CAMEX-4 ER-2 MICROWAVE TEMPERATURE PROFILER V1
Entry ID: c4emtp


Summary
Abstract: The Microwave Temperature Profiler (MTP) is a passive microwave radiometer which measures the thermal emmission from oxygen molecules in the atmosphere for a selection of elevation angles. Current observing frequencies are 56.6 and 58.8 GHz. Measured brightness temperature versus elevation angle is converted to air temperature versus altitude using a statistical retrieval procedure. An altitude temperature profile is produced every three km along the flight path. Theses data were collected during the CAMEX-4 campaign August 16-September 25, 2002 from Jacksonville Naval Air Station, Florida.
