PALS Soil Moisture Experiment (1999-2008) 800 m Earth-Fixed Grid Brightness Temperature and Backscatter Match-Up
Entry ID: NSIDC-0666


Summary
Abstract: This data set contains match‐up data obtained by the Passive Active L‐ and S‐band (PALS) microwave aircraft instrument. The data were collected as part of four different campaigns: Southern Great Plains 1999 (SGP99), Cloud and Land Surface Interaction Campaign 2007 (CLASIC 2007), Soil Moisture Experiment 2002 (SMEX02), and the SMAP Validation Experiment 2008 (SMAPVEX08).
