Brightness Temperature Variances from On-Planet Views in the A3 Channel by the Mars Climate Sounder
This dataset contains significant data analysis products related to a manuscript entitled, “A Multiannual Record of Gravity Wave Activity in Mars's Lower Atmosphere from the Mars Climate Sounder,” which was published as: Heavens, N.G., D.M. Kass, A. Kleinböhl, and J.T. Schofield, 2020, A Multiannual Record of Gravity Wave Activity in Mars's Lower Atmosphere from On-Planet Observations by the Mars Climate Sounder, Icarus, 341, 113630, doi: 10.1016/j.icarus.2020.113630. These fall into three broad categories: diagnoses of detrended brightness temperature variance at 635-665 cm-1 in individual views in the nadir or off-nadir by Mars Climate Sounder on board Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter; averages and other statistics of those diagnoses in space and time; and estimated gravity wave visibility functions for nadir, off-nadir, and nadir views with baselines like off-nadir views. This document presumes the manuscript is available to the dataset user. See MCS_A3_GW_Analysis_Dataset_Documentation.pdf for more detailed documentation.
