Data Set Long Name - Altimetric Backscattering

Version Number - 01

Data Set Description - 4 altimetric parameters (backscattering coefficient, waveform peakiness, leading edge width and trailingedge slope) for 4 altimetric missions (ERS-2, Envisat, Saral, J1, J2) using 4 bands (Ka, Ku, C AND S) .The data is set in three dimensions : at 1Hz along of track for spatial dimension and monthly, seasonally and yearly statistic of each parameter for parameter dimension and corresponding to same time steps for temporal dimension.
