DYCOMS-II Satellite: GOES-10 NRL Day/Night Low Cloud Imagery (JPG)


The GOES-10 NRL Day/Night Low Cloud Imagery (JPG) is one of several satellite products collected as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus Phase-II: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project field catalog operated by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL: The product is the visible channel during daylight hours (1400 to 0200 UTC) and a bispectral combination of infrared channels at night (0400 to 1200 UTC). The products cover the period from 1-31 July 2001 and cover the DYCOMS-II region (27-37 N and 115-127 W). The products are typically available every 15 minutes.
