Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) Monthly Mean Atmospheric Liquid Water (ALW) By Prabhakara

SMMR_ALW_PRABHAKARA data are Special Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) Monthly Mean Atmospheric Liquid Water (ALW) data by Prabhakara.The Prabhakara Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) Atmospheric Liquid Water (ALW) files were generated by Dr. Prabhakara Cuddapah at the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) using SMMR Antenna Temperatures. A discussion of the SMMR Antenna Temperatures is available from the Langley Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC). Each ALW file contains one month of 3 degree by 5 degree gridded mean liquid water. Each element of data is in units of mg/cm2. The data spans the period from February 1979 to May 1984.
