DMSP SSM/I-SSMIS Daily Polar Gridded Brightness Temperatures, Version 4

Version 4 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set provides daily gridded brightness temperatures derived from passive microwave sensors and distributed in a polar stereographic projection. Orbital data from nine channels and for each 24-hour period are mapped to respective grid cells using a simple sum and average method (drop-in-the-bucket method).
