Global Sea Ice EmissivityOperational Near real time product
The sea ice surface emissivity is representative for the near 50 GHz channels used for temperature sounding of the atmosphere using satellite radiometers such as SSMIS and AMSU. The model for computing the emissivities is described in the ATBD. It uses the brightness temperatures at 19v, 37v and 37h measured by the conically scanning SSMIS.
Simulated with measured coefficients.
