AVHRR Leads-ARI Polar Gridded Brightness Temperatures
Entry ID: NSIDC-0026

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of AVHRR imagery selected from hard copy 'quick look' images to provide the best coverage possible over the Arctic approximately every three days for a three-year period. Level-1B data from NOAA/SDSD have been calibrated and mapped to earth locations, then gridded to 1 km pixels on a basin scale to the polar stereographic projection. The projection is similar to that used by ... View entire text
