Defined in the early s for use with gridded satellite passive microwave data, the Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE-Grid) was quickly adopted and used for distribution of a variety of satellite and in situ data sets. Conceptually easy to understand, EASE-Grid suffers from limitations that make it impossible to format in the widely popular GeoTIFF convention without by: Resolution of most numerical weather models is not sufficient for polar low study Most of the polar lows are not revealed on surface analysis maps. 12 International Workshop on Polar Lows, Oslo, Norway, 22 May Norwegian Meteorological Institute.

A method of determining sea ice parameters using dual‐polarized multispectral radiance data obtained with the NIMBUS 7 Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) is presented. Sea ice concentration is determined both at a 60‐km resolution Polar microwave brightness temperatures from Nimbus-7 SMMR book the polarization at the ‐cm wavelength and at a 30‐km resolution using the.

The authors of this study combined images from the AVHRR instrument onboard the NOAA-7 satellite and from the Nimbus-7 Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR.

Abstract. An algorithm has been developed which utilizes the multi- spectral data available from the Nimbus-7 Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (Nimbus-7 SMMR) to infer sea ice concentration (C), multiyear ice fraction (F), and ice surface by: 6. The Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) is a seven-channel, four-frequency, linearly polarized passive microwave radiometer system.

It is flown on board the United States Air Force Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) Block 5D-2 satellites.

The instrument measures surface/atmospheric microwave brightness temperatures (TBs) at. 2 Overview of NASA Data Sets. As a first step in assessing data sets with relevance to research in high latitudes, it is important to describe the broad context—that is, to introduce NASA's Earth Science Enterprise (ESE) and to provide examples to illustrate the great diversity of available and expected products.

This book contains a description and analysis of the spatial and temporal variations in the Arctic and Antarctic sea ice covers from Octo througb Aug It is based on data collected by tbe Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) onboard the NASA Nimbus 7 satellite. Sea surface temperature (SST) is an important geophysical parameter, providing the boundary condition used in the estimation of heat flux at the air-sea interface.

On the global scale this is important for climate modeling, study of the earth's heat balance, and insight into atmospheric and oceanic circulation patterns and anomalies (such as El.

Brightness temperatures (directly proportional to the radiance) are plotted on the right. Vertical axes scale the pressure (left) and the air temperature (center). Also shown on the right are the brightness temperatures for the μm. SMMR ice extent and concentration products and SMMR-SSM/I gridded brightness temperatures were designated as Polar Pathfinders.
