SSM/T-2 Microwave Humidity Sounder Climate Data Record Release 2 - DMSP

Abstract:
Release 2 of the Fundamental Climate Data Record (FCDR) of the Microwave Humidity Sounder consists of measurements from Special Sensor Microwave Humidity (SSM/T-2) onboard Defense Meteorologocal Satellite Program (DMSP) satellites F11, F12, F14, and F15. The FCDR provides recalibrated brightness temperatures with detailed uncertainty estimates and error correlation information. It also comes with additional cloud flag information. The FCDR was generated for the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) and as further elaborated in the Product User Guide, the FCDR files are provided in netCDF4 format.
