NSCAT SIRF Image Creation
David G. Long and James Dyal, MERS Technical Report 97-04, 21 Oct.
Describes the process by which the NSCAT SIRF images are made and describes
the standard NSCAT SIRF image product suite.
Optimization of SIRF for NSCAT
Quinn P. Remund and David G. Long, MERS Technical Report 97-03, 3 July 1997
Provides an overview of the SIRF algorithm and descibes the procedure taken to
optimize SIRF specifically for NSCAT data.
Current Progress in Ku-Band Model
David G. Long, MERS Technical Report 96-002, August 1996
Compares several model functions and suggests criteria for the selection
of a model function for processing NSCAT data.
Azimuth Variation in Microwave
Scatterometer and Radiometer Data Over Antarctica
David G. Long and Mark Drinkwater, May 4, 1999
Explores the use of NSCAT data, ERS AMI scatterometer mode data, and
SSM/I data to study surface roughness effects in Antarctica.
Cryosphere Applications of NSCAT
David G. Long and Mark Drinkwater, January 6, 1999
Describes two cryosphere applications of NSCAT data: 1) sea-ice mapping and
tracking and 2) ice-sheet change in Greenland and Antarctica.
