International MODIS/AIRS Processing Package

 AMSR-E Level 2 Snow Water Equivalent Software Package

This package consists of software needed to process IMAPP direct broadcast binary calibration and geolocation AMSR-E data into a Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) product in HDF-EOS format. Output values are stored as byte values scaled by 2 (multiply value by 2 to get SWE in mm) on a 25 km Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE-Grid). The software uses the AMSR-E B05 science algorithm to produce the retrievals. The DAAC provides very good documentation at the NSIDC SWE web site.

The package is supported on Intel Linux platforms.
