SnowEx17 KT-15 Infrared Brightness Temperature, Version 1

This data set contains brightness temperature readings. Brightness temperatures were measured using a KT-15 pyrometer flown on a P-3 aircraft over 2017 SnowEx campaign study areas in Colorado, USA: Grand Mesa, a snow-covered, forested study site about 40 miles east of Grand Junction; and Senator Beck Basin, approximately 80 miles to the SSE of Grand Mesa. Data represents the nadir brightness temperature below the aircraft.

This is the most recent version of these data.
