BYU Scatterometer Climate Record Pathfinder (SCP) Data Sets, Version 1

Brigham Young University (BYU) Center for Remote Sensing holds various data from the Scatterometer Climate Record Pathfinder (SCP) program. The SCP is a NASA-sponsored project to develop scatterometer-based data time series to support climate studies of the Earth's cryosphere and biosphere. Originally developed to measure winds over the ocean from space, scatterometer data includes polar ice and tropical vegetation. Because the scatterometer radar signal can penetrate the surface, a scatterometer can observe subsurface/subcanopy climate-related features.

These data sets consist of an Antarctic iceberg database, current Antarctic iceberg locations, sea ice extent products, QuikSCAT sea ice motion, and QuikSCAT global sigma-0 browse images.
