SnowEx17 UM Quantum Well Infrared Photodetector (QWIP) Surface Temperature V001
Entry ID: SNEX17_QWIP_ST_1

Abstract: This data set contains infrared camera images collected during the 2017 SnowEx campaign in Grand Mesa and Senator Beck Basin, Colorado. Images were taken using a Quantum Well Infrared Photodetector (QWIP) camera system manufactured by QmagiQ and mounted to the P-3 aircraft, which was flown over the study areas. The QWIP camera records images at a rate of 60 Hz and has a field of view of 11x9 degrees. The QWIP camera can distinguish temperature variations of approximately 0.02C.

This data set contains raw QWIP data, presented as "counts." Data are contained in TIFF image files with dimensions of 320x256 counts.
