Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) Monthly Mean Integrated Water Vapor (IWV) By Prabhakara

Metadata Updated: March 19, 2024

SMMR_IWV_PRABHAKARA data are Special Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) Monthly Mean Integrated Water Vapor (IWV) data by Prabhakara.The Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) Prabhakara integrated atmospheric water vapor (IWV) files were generated by Dr. Prabhakara Cuddapah at the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) using SMMR Antenna Temperatures. A discussion of the SMMR Antenna Temperatures is available from the Langley Research Center Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC). Each IWV file contains one month of 3 degree by 5 degree gridded mean water vapor. A scale factor of 0.1 must be applied to convert the data into units of g/cm2. The data spans the period from October 1979 to September 1983.
