Evaluation of Nimbus 7 SMMR Sensor with Airborne Radiometers and Surface Observations in the Norwegian Sea
A comparison of Nimbus 7 SMMR measurements with near simultaneous observations using the airborne SMMR simulator and with surface observations was carried out in the Norwegian Sea in November 1978. The results indicate the need for further work on algorithms and calibration for both radiometric instruments.
