SnowEx17 Ground-Based UWScat Ku- and X-Band Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave Radar V001
Entry ID: SNEX17_UWScat_1


Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of ground-based scatterometer data acquired during the SnowEx 2017 campaign at Grand Mesa, Colorado, USA, a snow-covered, forested study site about 40 miles east of the city of Grand Junction, CO. The data comprise operational parameters used during data acquisition, Mueller matrices for each acquisition, and the nearfield-corrected normalized radar cross section (NRCS) in VV, VH, HV, and HH polarizations. Range profile data are also provided for each scan which report the raw power returned as a function of range from the antenna.
