SnowEx17 KT-15 Infrared Brightness Temperature V001

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set contains brightness temperature readings. Brightness temperatures were measured using a KT-15 pyrometer flown on a P-3 aircraft over 2017 SnowEx campaign study areas in Colorado, USA: Grand Mesa, a snow-covered, forested study site about 40 miles east of Grand Junction; and Senator Beck Basin, approximately 80 miles to the SSE of Grand Mesa. Data represents the nadir brightness temperature below the aircraft.
