SGP99 Satellite: NOAA POES AVHRR GAC Data (via SAA)


This dataset contains data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES) Advanced Very High Reoslution Radiometer (AVHRR) instrument. The data are the 4 km resolution Level 1B Global Area Coverage (GAC) produced on-board the satellite by sampling the AVHRR 1 km data to 4 km by averaging along-scan groups of four samples out of five and skipping every third scan. The data includes all five channels at 10 bit precision, with time tags, Earth location, and calibration information. These data are available on-line from the Satellite Active Archive (SAA) at:
