DYCOMS-II Satellite: NOAA POES GAC (4km) Data (level1b)

Summary

The NOAA POES GAC Data is one of several satellite data sets collected by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus Phase II: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project. Included in the data set are Global Area Coverage (4 km resolution) measurements from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) aboard the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES). The The data cover the period from 7 - 28 July 2001. Data are available at POES satellite overpass times. These data were acquired from the NOAA Satellite Active Archive (http://www.saa.noaa.gov) and are in level1B format. Any passes that had any portion over the DYCOMS-II region (26-37N and 115-127W) are included within this data set.
