The P-band radar successfully completed its Houston, TX deployment on July 23. We conducted 3 observations each over Walnut Gulch, AZ (desert shrubs) and MOISST, OK (temperate grasslands and SMAP cal/val site). Both radar and aircraft performed nominally. The JSC G-III and P-band radar are headed to Montana on Friday for the second summer campaign over Metolius Pine, Oregon and BERMS, Saskatchewan. The JPL radar team began delivery of L1 radar data from campaigns in February through June. Science team members continue to process higher level products. The PI is at IGARSS this week presenting soil moisture retrieval results from last Fall's campaigns.
