Technical Abstract: The synthetic aperture radiometer, ESTAR, provided L-band brightness temperature maps of the experiment site during the Southern Great Plains Experiment in 1999 (SGP99). ESTAR flew on the NASA P-3B Orion aircraft at an altitude of 7.6 km and mapped a swath about 50 km wide and about 300 km long, extending west from Oklahoma City to El Reno and north from below the eLittle Washita River watershed to the Kansas border. The brightness temperature maps reflect the patterns of soil moisture expected from rainfall and observed at the surface sites within the SGP99 study area.
