P12 V ORBITING RADAR DERIVED BACKSCATTER CROSS SECTION V1.0

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

This data set consists of a VICAR2 format image of Venus large-angle radar backscatter cross section, from the side-looking mode of the Pioneer Venus radar mapper experiment. The cross section is corrected for Venus atmospheric absorption and normalized to 45 degree incidence angle via the phenomenological Muhleman scattering function. Data are presented in simple cylindrical format, with 1024 lines (latitude) and 4096 samples (longitude).
