Using This Disc
This disc contains NSCAT SIRF image data and browse images. The
web interface can be accessed by opening the "index.html" file at
the top directory level of the disc.
The top panel of the main page contains three kinds of links:
Links to software and documentation directories and this help
Links to the providers of this data.
Links to tables of Arctic or Antarctic data.
The bottom panel contains a link to email for additional information
and information about the generation of this product.
The Arctic and Antarctic data tables each contain three types
The table header contains links to the directories actually
containing the data;
The main body of the table contains "X"s which are links to
browse images of that data file. The "X"s indicate data availability.
The last line of the table contains links to animations of
each type of browse image.

The multivariate SIRF algorithm is a non-linear resolution enhancement
algorithm based on modified algebraic reconstruction and maximum
entropy techniques. The algorithm is described in the paper.
