[DOI: 10.21982/M82904 ] Parameterized ASCAT SZO Spatial Response Function
Long, David; Lindsley, Richard; Anderson, Craig; Figa-Saldaña, Julia
Software for computing BYU's parameterized spatial response function (SRF) for SZF scatterometer backscatter measurements collected by the European Space Agency (ESA) Advanced Scatterometer (ASCAT) on Metop spacecraft series. Includes a test program. Code is written in C but is designed to able to be used with fortran. The parameterization enables efficient computation of the SRF function for individual SZO ASCAT measurements as described and validated in the referenced paper.
