Clementine Reduced Bistatic Radar Data

This archive contains archival data produced during analysis of Clementine bistatic radar observations at Stanford University.  Raw data were archived earlier as data set CLEM-L-RSS-1-BSR-V1.0 and contain measurements from seven Clementine orbits of the Moon. This data set is primarily limited to data from Orbit 234 with special emphasis on data collected between 18:36:45 and 18:52:45 UTC on 1994-04-09.
