Meltpond2000 Polarimetric Scanning Radiometer Sea Ice Brightness Temperatures, Version 1 (NSIDC-0208)
This is the most recent version of these data.
The Meltpond2000 project was the first in a series of Arctic and Antarctic aircraft campaigns to validate sea ice algorithms developed for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer - Earth Observing System (AMSR-E), primarily to quantify errors in AMSR-E sea ice products resulting from the presence of melt ponds.
