  • Abstract A six-channel airborne total-power Millimeter-wave Imaging Radiometer (MIR) was recently built to provide measurements of atmospheric water vapor, clouds, and precipitation. The instrument is a cross-track scanner that has a 3-dB beamwidth of 3.5° and an angular swath of 100°. It measures radiation at the frequencies of 89, 150, 183.3 ± 1, 183.3 ± 3, 183.3 ± 7, and 220 GHz. The inclusion of the 220-GHz receiver makes this instrument unique; no other instrument has made atmospheric… CONTINUE READING
