ACE-1: Satellite GMS-5 WV Images (GIF)


GMS-5 Water Vapor (WV) 6.7 micron imagery collected during the ACE-1 Intensive Operations in Hobart, Tasmania, from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) then converted to GIF image format. These images consist of the Southern Ocean (image center 30 deg S, 140 deg E), 8 km resolution, every hour. Digital McIDAS Area format files (4 km resolution) were collected hourly at OFPS from the BoM from which these GIF images were created.
