The reflectivity bias and beam width of the main reflector (MR) of the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for EOS (AMSR-E) aboard the Aqua spacecraft are evaluated by using AMSR-E data observed into the deep space during the Aqua roll maneuver for the MODIS lunar calibration. The reflectivity bias is hardly observed between MR and the cold sky mirror (CSM) and the beam width is confirmed to be very close to the pre-launch performance for all frequencies and polarizations except 89GHz… CONTINUE READING
