Advanced Microwave Radiometer (AMR)

NSSDCA ID: 2008-032A-02

Mission Name: Jason 2

Description

AMR is the Advanced Microwave Radiometer that receives thermal radiation at three frequencies, 18, 21, and 37 GHZ from atmospheric water vapor which is another source of delay in the altimeter measurements. It is easy to correct for this delay with the measured water vapor content.
