Description
The High Altitude monolithic microwave integrated Circuit (MMIC)
Sounding Radiometer (HAMSR) is a microwave atmospheric sounder
recently developed by JPL under the NASA Instrument Incubator
Program. Operating with 25 spectral channels in the 50-190 HGz
region, it provides measurements that can be used to infer the
3-D distribution of temperature, water vapor, and liquid water
in the atmosphere, even in the presence of clouds. HAMSR was
mounted in a wing pod of a NASA ER-2 research aircraft.
