NASA DC-8 Airborne Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (AMMR) Data

This data set contains the microwave brightness temperatures from the Airborne Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (AMMR) that was on-board the NASA DC-8 aircraft that flew out of Townsville, Australia during the TOGA COARE field project. For TOGA COARE the AMMR was used for measurements of hydrometeors associated with tropical convective systems. The data are in an ASCII format.
