Document Title Overview of Aquarius Radiometer Post-Launch Measurements Counts to Antenna Temperature Processing for Product Version 5
Description This document provides an overview of the algorithms used to transform raw Aquarius radiometer acquisitions into antenna temperature data. The main steps followed in this processing are described, including RFI detection and mitigation.  Results and algorithm parametrizations as pertain to the end-of-mission V5.0 Aquarius data are discussed.
