GCIP/ESOP-95 and STORM-WAVE: Radar Composite Imagery (GIF)


This dataset contains images generated from the the WSI NIDS 4 km national radar mosaic for the duration of the STORM-WAVE and GCIP/ESOP-95 Experiments. One image per day, generally at 2300 UTC, is available. These images are provided to allow the user to see a visual representation of the radar reflectivity recorded over the United States on a given day of the project. They are not meant to be used for scientific analysis, but rather as a browsing product.
