—Two calibration anomalies of the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program's (DMSP) Special Sensor Microwave Im-ager Sounder (SSMIS) radiometer are examined by using several sources of data. Early orbit mode data from the SSMIS are used to create radiometric images of the warm calibration load that evolve over an entire orbit to elucidate the effects of(More)
the cal/val program. In particular, the tasks of diagnosing the root cause(s) of these anomalies as well as the development of ground processing software algorithms to mitigate their impact on F-16 SSMIS and hardware fixes on future instruments necessitated the construction of extensive analysis and simulation tools. The lessons learned from the SSMIS(More)
