CLAMPS2 Microwave Radiometer Data

These files contain 24 hour periods of brightness temperatures and retrieved liquid water path and precipitable water derived from observations collected by the CLAMPS2 microwave radiometer (MWR). The retrieved values are computed by a statistical retrieval based on Turner et al. 2007. These data were collected during the Chequamegon Heterogeneous Ecosystem Energy-balance Study Enabled by a High-density Extensive Array of Detectors (CHEESEHEAD) project. Data are provided in netCDF and imagery are PNG files.
