DATASET OVERVIEW

Abstract

Three scale-types of datasets observed by new generation of remote sensing satellites (including TERRA, AQUA, ADEOS-II) in addition to TRMM and DMSP series, which were providing enhancement of observing capabilities to quantify critical atmospheric, surface, hydrologic and oceanographic data during CEOP time periods are available. 250 km square snapshots of the highest resolution raw radiances (with geographic location, i.e. level 1) remote sensing data at the 35-51 in situ reference sites are archived.

”Satellite

ERSF

European Remote Sensing Satellite No.1 (ERS-1) was launched into a solar-synchronous orbit at an altitude of about 780 km in 1991. It is an Earth Observation Satellite to mainly observe ocean, sea ice districution, sea surface wind, oceanic circulation, etc. and observes land areas with a high-resolution radar, too.

Synthetic Aperture Radar (AMI), Scatterometer (SCAT), Radar Altimeter (RA), Scanning Radiomter and Sounder (ATSR-M), Laser Reflector (LRR), Precision Ranging Equipment (PRARE) are equipped with the satellite and data other than those by SAR can be recorded by the data recorder. The satellite has three modes of operation in a recurrent period of 35 days as standard, 3 days, and 176 days flying at an altitude of 780 km in a solar-synchronous orbit with an inclination of 98.5.
