PALS/In Situ Multi-Campaign 800 m UTM Grid Brightness Temperature, Backscatter, and Soil Moisture Match-Up V001

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set contains data obtained by the Passive Active L- and S-band (PALS) microwave aircraft instrument that are matched up with a variety of soil moisture campaign data. The data were collected as part of four different campaigns: Southern Great Plains 1999 (SGP99), Cloud and Land Surface Interaction Campaign 2007 (CLASIC07), Soil Moisture Experiment 2002 (SMEX02), and the SMAP Validation Experiment 2008 (SMAPVEX08).
