TCSP ER-2 MICROWAVE TEMPERATURE PROFILER (MTP) V1
Entry ID: tcspmtp

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The ER2 MTP is a passive microwave radiometer which measures the thermal emission from oxygen molecules in the atmosphere for a selection of elevation angles (normally 10 between +60 and -58 degrees). The current observing frequencies are 55.5, 56.6 and 58.8 GHz. Measured 'brightness temperature' versus elevation angle is converted to air temperature versus altitude using a modified statistical ... View entire text
