CLPX-Airborne: Multiband Polarimetric Scanning Radiometer (PSR) Imagery
Entry ID: NSIDC-0155

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data set provides multiband polarimetric brightness temperature images over three 25 x 25 km Meso-cell Study Areas (MSAs) in Northern Colorado. The purpose of collecting these data within the overall aims of the NASA Cold Land Processes Field Experiment (CLPX) is to 1) provide multiband polarimetric dry snow microwave images using AMSR-E bands at a spatial resolution representative of the ...
