Title: ERS-2 Synthetic Aperture Radar Data held at the Alaska Satellite Facility
Description:
Abstract:
The data set consists of all ERS-2 SAR data acquired by the Alaska Satellite Facility (ASF) operated by the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska in Fairbanks. The data set contains data collected within the ASF station mask, approximated by a 3000 km radius circle centered on Fairbanks, and within the McMurdo station mask, approximated by a 3000 km radius circle centered on McMurdo Station, Antarctica.
