DYCOMS-II Surface: Regional Surface Station Plot Imagery (GIF)

Summary

The Regional Surface Station Plot Imagery (GIF) is one of several surface products collected as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus PhaseII: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project field catalogoperated by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL: http://catalog.eol.ucar.edu/dycoms). The images are produced by NCAR/EOL every hour and include surface station plots from surface land stations, buoys, and ships of opportunity. The products cover the period from 1-29 July 2001 and cover the region from about 26-40 N and 112-130 W. All images are in GIF format.
