GRIP HURRICANE IMAGING RADIOMETER (HIRAD) V0Entry ID: griphirad
Abstract: HIRAD is a hurricane imaging, single-pol passive C-band radiometer with both cross-track and along-track resolution that measures strong ocean surface winds through heavy rain from an aircraft or space-based platform. Its swath width is approximately 60 degrees in either direction. V0 data is available measuring brightness temperatures at 5 GHz. Rain Rate and Wind speed files for EARL have been added to the collection. HIRAD data was collected for storms EARL and KARL during the GRIP experiment during September 2010. The GRIP Hurricane Imaging Radiometer data set is a preliminary data set. If you plan to use this data in a publication and/or a presentation, please contact GHRC User Services Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
