Uncalibrated Delay-Doppler Images
A new set of data products has been added to the
archive. Please see
errata.txt for more information.
polarimetric radar image data for Venus were collected from
1988-2020, using the Arecibo Observatory 12.6-cm
(2380 MHz) transmitter in Puerto Rico and receivers at either
Observatory or the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia.
This data set contains complex-valued images
of the backscatter from Venus for individual
coherent looks five minutes in duration. The
maps are in uncalibrated delay-Doppler
data were provided by Bruce Campbell of the
Smithsonian Institution's Center for Earth and Planetary
Studies and archived by the PDS Geosciences
