Summary
Abstract: This data set contains enhanced-resolution brightness temperatures produced using the Scatterometer Image Reconstruction (SIR) algorithm developed by the Microwave Earth Remote Sensing (MERS) group at Brigham Young University (BYU). Enhanced-resolution brightness temperature images for the Arctic and Antarctic were generated using antenna temperature data from the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager ... View entire text

Quality Enhanced SSM/I brightness temperatures were produced without calibration changes from the Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) Version 6 (V6) SSM/I swath product for DMSP-F13. Enhanced AMSR-E brightness temperatures were produced, also without adjustments, from the RSS V4 AMSR-E swath product. For details regarding calibration and validation of these source products, please visit RSS.
