SBS/MWR/M1 - Instrument problem
|DataStreams:||sbsmwrtipM1.a1, sbsmwrlosM1.b1, sbsmwrM1.00|
The fan in the dewblower malfunctioned from 3/11 to 3/30. During this time it is likely that snow deposited on the radome during snowfall events and it stayed on the radome longer than usual.
Users should be aware that during and immediately after snowfall the brightness temperatures and the retrievals may be affected by deposition of snow on the radome.
