Overview

This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, is an improved, enhanced-resolution, gridded passive microwave Earth System Data Record (ESDR) for monitoring cryospheric and hydrologic time series from SMMR, SSM/I-SSMIS, and AMSR-E. It is derived from the most mature and available Level-2 satellite passive microwave records from 1978 through the present.
