APR-2 Dual-frequency Airborne Radar Observations, Wakasa Bay
Entry ID: NSIDC-0195

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: In January and February 2003, the Airborne Second Generation Precipitation Radar (APR-2) collected data in the Wakasa Bay AMSR-E validation campaign over the sea of Japan on board a NASA P-3 aircraft. Data were collected on all P-3 flights that encountered precipitation. APR-2 collected data at 13.405 and 35.605 GHz in a downward-looking, cross-track scanning geometry. The experiment was designed ... View entire text
