Webinar: A New Era for Gridded Passive Microwave Data at the NASA NSIDC DAAC
Satellite passive microwave sensors provide particularly useful Earth observations as they can 'see’ through clouds and collect measurements both day and night. Join us to learn more about a new, enhanced-resolution passive microwave dataset!
Presenter: Mary Jo Brodzik, NASA NSIDC DAAC

Special Sensor Microwave Imager
Special Sensor Microwave ImagerSpecial Sensor Microwave Imager [SSM/I]-Special Sensor Microwave Imager/Sounder [SSMIS], Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer - EOS [AMSR-E]) records from 1978 to the present, and using state-of-the-art numerical methods to increase image spatial resolution. We expect the new processing methods to enable scientists to better analyze trends in coastal regions and marginal ice zones that were not possible with previous releases of the data. The new data use the EASE-Grid 2.0 definition and netCDF-CF formatting, which allows users to extract compliant geotiff images, and provides for easy importing and correct reprojection interoperability in many standard packages, including Interactive Data Language [IDL], ENVI, Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL), Panoply and Arc tools. As a consistently-processed, high-quality satellite passive microwave ESDR, we expect this data set to supercede at least 4 of NSIDC's standard EASE-Grid passive microwave products, and pave the way for new insights from higher-resolution derived geophysical products.
