Antarctica’s internal ice sheet temperature from SMOS

Category : CATDS, Data, L4

The new version of the internal ice sheet temperature estimated from SMOS over Antarctica is now available.This dataset is based on the combination of L-band (1.4 GHz) passive microwave observations with glaciological and emission models. The study highlights the potential of low microwave frequencies for investigating the internal temperature of the ice sheet.
