SASS Data Animations

SASS 'A' (sigma-0 at 40 deg incidence angle) images of the various regions are animated in the following movies. The images have been down sampled from their original sizes and may have modified aspect ratios. These movies are available in (only) animated gif formats. The poor spatial coverage characteristics of SASS results in "holes" in the images, particularly for h-pol which was not used much over land.

Here are several different regions from year 1978 for sash and sasv:
 
 Antarctic & Arctic  Siberia & North Africa  Greenland & Alaska  Europe & North China and Japan
 Australia & North America  Indonesia & Bering Strait  South Africa & South America  Central America & South Asia
