COSMIC Interactive Map Product Imagery [NCAR/EOL]



This dataset includes COSMIC Map Product Imagery from the VORTEX2 field catalogs for 2009 and 2010. These skewT images are in PNG format except for 20090706 - 20090810 where there are also GOES-12 thermal images in JPEG format. Both the 2009 and 2010 field phases cover approximately May through June for those years. The users will need to use the field catalogs to relate locations of the skewT diagrams to the base image map. See the catalog links in the related links section below to access the field catalogs.
