Nimbus-7 SMMR Pathfinder Daily EASE-Grid Brightness Temperatures, Version 1

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set consists of brightness temperatures acquired from the Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) on board the Nimbus-7 Pathfinder satellite. The brightness temperatures are gridded onto the Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE-Grid) and are presented in three different projections: Northern Hemisphere, Southern Hemisphere, and global.
