Greenland Ice Sheet Melt Characteristics Derived from Passive Microwave Data, Version 1
Entry ID: NSIDC-0218_1


Summary
Abstract: The Greenland ice sheet melt extent data, acquired as part of the NASA Program for Arctic Regional Climate Assessment (PARCA), is a daily (or every other day, prior to August 1987) estimate of the spatial extent of wet snow on the Greenland ice sheet since 1979. It is derived from passive microwave satellite brightness temperature characteristics using the Cross-Polarized Gradient Ratio (XPGR) of ... View entire text
