[1] The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) sensor was launched 28 October 2011 on the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (SNPP) satellite. VIIRS has 22 spectral bands covering the spectrum between 0.412μm and 12.01μm, including 16 moderate resolution bands (M-bands) with a nominal spatial resolution of 750m at nadir, five imaging(More)
This paper presents sea ice environmental parameter retrieval algorithms using data from WindSat, a fully polarimetric passive microwave radiometer. Sea ice concentration and age are retrieved from WindSat data by adapting NASA-TEAM (NT) algorithm, which has been operationally used for special sensor microwave/imager (SSM/I). The tie-points and weather(More)
The VIIRS instrument was launched on the NASA/NOAA Suomi NPP satellite in October 2011. This instrument is the first of a series of VIIRS instruments meant to continue the operational and long-term measurements of NASA, NOAA and DOD heritage instruments such as the MODIS instruments on the NASA EOS Terra and Aqua satellites and other. The VIIRS Sensor Data(More)
The visible infrared imaging radiometer suite (VIIRS) instrument was launched on October 28, 2011 onboard the Suomi National Polar-Orbiting Partnership (SNPP) satellite. The VIIRS instrument is a whiskbroom system with 22 spectral and thermal bands split between 16 moderate resolution bands (M-bands), five imagery resolution bands (I-bands), and a(More)

With the same routing algorithm and network coding scheme, the complexity of network coding (NC) increases with the network scale. In this paper, a network coding scheme based on key nodes is proposed, which is that only the subnet consists of important nodes adopts NC. Using this scheme, the scale of the network that performs NC is reduced, and the(More)
The geomorphic features of alluvial fans in arid and semi-arid areas can contain vast amounts of information for the study of paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental changes. Taking the Shule River Alluvial Fan (SRAF) as study area, the research of surface roughness estimation, one of the important geomorphic features of the arid and semi-arid alluvial fans,(More)
With the increasing need to construct long-term climate-quality data records to understand, monitor, and predict climate variability and change, it is vital to continue systematic satellite measurements along with the development of new technology for more quantitative and accurate observations. The Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership mission provides(More)
