CLPX-Airborne: Polarimetric Ku-Band Scatterometer (POLSCAT) Data
Entry ID: NSIDC-0159

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set contains Ku-band polarimetric scatterometer (POLSCAT) data collected as part of the Cold Land Processes Field Experiment (CLPX) to enable the development of a retrieval algorithm for snow water equivalent (SWE). POLSCAT is a Ku-band polarimetric scatterometer operating at 13.95 GHz. Flights were flown on 19, 21, and 23 February 2002 (during IOP1), 25 March 2002 (IOP2), and 25, 28 and ... View entire text
