[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: NVAP_SSMI_MNTHLY is a legacy data set containing three types of files for each month from the SSM/I data only: cloud liquid water (CLW), liquid water path (LWP) and perciptable water content (PWC), each in monthly grids. CLW and LWP contained data spanning the full twelve years of the NVAP project. PWC was a parameter added to the data set with data spanning January 1993 to December 1999.
