Passive Microwave

Level-1 Processing

This module is specific to each type of instrument; however some common Blocks have been identified across different types of instruments. The architectures proposed in each case are presented in the specific sections further down this document.

The commonalities identified within this module are the following:

  • Calibration Block present for all passive types of instruments, although with implementation that may differ.
  • Determination of Calibration Parameters Block present for different passive types of instruments, although with implementations that may differ.
  • Polarization Rotation: Passive Microwaves.


Biblos.COTS This is Biblos COTS package with installation script. Script installs libraries:- kissFFT- boost- netcdf- zlib- hdf5- eigen

Biblos.Commons This is a package common for all the Blocks and Modules. Commons contain helper functions e.g. for reading NetCDF or parsing XML files as well as Blocks and Modules interfaces.

Tool: Tiff to NetCDF converter BIBLOS works with NetCDF format for the images. This is a tool to convert Tiff to NetCDF. It is external to BIBLOS, the user shall convert the image offline. THe package includes an executable, a README file (with instructions) and an example auxiliary file.
