DYCOMS-II Satellite: GOES-10 NRL Night Fog and Low Cloud Imagery (JPG)

Summary

The GOES-10 NRL Night Fog and 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: http://catalog.eol.ucar.edu/dycoms). This product uses Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-10 (GOES-10) data to derive regions of potential fog and low cloud over the Eastern Pacific Ocean during the night (0500 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 during the night (0500 to 1200 UTC). The products were acquired from the Naval Research Laboratory. All images are in jpg format.
