First Data Acquisition at SIO

On January 13th 1999, we acquired a 700 km-long pass of SAR data from ERS-2. The data were focussed the following day. Some data dropouts occurred because of a disk malfunction and low signal strength. These two issues are being corrected and we expect to be fully operational by mid-February.
This swath extends from Central Montanata to the Snake River Plain in Idaho.
