PALS/In Situ Multi-Campaign 800 m UTM Grid Brightness Temperature, Backscatter, and Soil Moisture Match-Up, Version 1

This data set contains data obtained by the Passive Active L- and S-band (PALS) microwave aircraft instrument that are matched up with a variety of soil moisture campaign data. The data were collected as part of four different campaigns: Southern Great Plains 1999 (SGP99), Cloud and Land Surface Interaction Campaign 2007 (CLASIC07), Soil Moisture Experiment 2002 (SMEX02), and the SMAP Validation Experiment 2008 (SMAPVEX08).

This is the most recent version of these data.
