Sensitivities to ocean and sea ice parameters as a function of CIMR channels


The figure illustrates the sensitivities of the low passive microwave brightness temperature at the top-of-the-atmosphere, in terms of Sea Surface Temperature (SST), Sea Surface Salinity (SSS), Ocean Wind Speed (OWS) and Sea Ice Concentration (SIC) as a function of frequency from 1 to 40 GHz, range that is covered by the CIMR MRC channels.
