A new G-band (183.31-GHz) water-vapor radiometer, developed and built by ProSensing Inc., was deployed in Barrow, AK, in April 2005. The radiometer is part of a suite of instruments maintained by the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement program. The instrument measures brightness temperatures from four double-sideband channels centered at plusmn1, plusmn3, plusmn7, and plusmn14 GHz from the 183.31-GHz water-vapor line. Atmospheric emission in this spectral region is primarily due to water vapor… CONTINUE READING
