Defined in the early 1990s for use with gridded satellite passive microwave data, the Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE-Grid) was quickly adopted and used for distribution of a variety of satellite and in situ data sets. Conceptually easy to understand, EASE-Grid suffers from limitations that make it impossible to format in the widely popular GeoTIFF… (More)
We wish to make the following corrections to this paper : (1) The right hand side of Figure 5 is incorrect. Figure 5. Relative gridding schemes for representative azimuthal 25 km and 12.5 km original EASE-Grid ((Left), bore-centered) vs. EASE-Grid 2.0 ((Right), nested) cells near the pole.
The NASA Cold-land Processes Field Experiment-1 (CLPX-1) involved several instruments in order to acquire data a t different spatial resolutions. Indeed, one of the main tasks of CLPX-1 was to explore scaling issues associated with microwave remote sensing of snowpacks. To achieve this task, microwave brightness temperatures collected at 18.7, 36.5, and 89… (More)
