Overview

This data set, part of the SnowEx 2017 campaign, contains multi-look synthetic aperture radar (SAR) amplitude images. The images are stored in netCDF files; browse images are also available. Data were collected using the SnowSAR instrument at the X (9.6 GHz) and Ku (17.25 GHz) bands. The SnowSAR instrument flew on the NP-3C Orion aircraft and captured data from across Colorado, including near the SnowEx 2017 Grand Mesa, Colorado study site and Vail, Colorado. Data were acquired between 16 February 2017 and 22 February 2017 and have a resolution of 1 meter by 1 meter.
