Group: Summary

   









 This data set provides 
   daily, near-real-time Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) and Special 
   Sensor Microwave Imager/Sounder (SSMIS) brightness temperatures in the 
   Equal-Area Scalable Earth-Grid (EASE-Grid). The data set consists of gridded 
   data in two projections: Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere. The data 
   lag by one day and provide 270 days of near-real-time data. The spatial 
   resolution is 25 km for all channels. Data are contained in flat binary files 
   and are available via FTP.
