DescriptionThe Topex Microwave Radiometer (TMR) replacement product, version 1.0, is intended as an interim product for use with the version B Topex MGDRs while a new Topex/Poseidon GDR is being generated. The new GDR will contain the TMR data provided in this replacement product. The TMR replacement product was generated after a recalibration of the TMR for the entire Topex/Poseidon mission by Shannon Brown at JPL.
