CLPX-Satellite: AVHRR/HRPT Brightness Temperatures and Reflectances
This data set includes AVHRR/HRPT (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer/High Resolution Picture Transmission) brightness temperatures and reflectances over the NASA Cold Land Processes Field Experiment (CLPX) Large Regional Study Area (LRSA) (NW corner: 42°N, 108.5°W, SE corner: 38.5°N 104°W). Data are gridded to the LRSA at 1.1 km (or 30 arc-second) resolution. Data were collected between November 2001 and May 2003. Reflectance files contain flat binary rasters of 2-byte unsigned integers representing albedo. The brightness temperature files contain 2-byte unsigned integers representing interpolated temperatures in tenths of degrees Kelvin.
