Antarctic daily surface melt data estimated from SMMR, SSM/I, and SSMIS passive microwave observations, 1978-2016
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01074

Summary

Abstract:
This dataset contains gridded daily surface melt data for Antarctica estimated from passive microwave observations from the Scanning Microwave Multichannel Radiometer (SMMR), the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I), and the Special Sensor Microwave Imager Sounder (SSMIS) spaceborne sensors and covering the 1978-2017 period. Also provided are the latitudes and longitudes of the grid and computed melt days for each austral summer (Dec-Jan-Feb) during the period.

Funding was provided by NSF grants PLR 1341695 and PLR 1443443.
