DYCOMS-II Satellite: NOAA-14 AVHRR NRL Cloud Classification Product
The NOAA POES AVHRR NRL Cloud Classification Product (JPG) is one of several satellite products collected as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus PhaseII: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project field catalog operated by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL: http://catalog.eol.ucar.edu/dycoms). The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) utilizes the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellite (POES) Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) from the NOAA-14 satellite to develop cloud classifications. Two products are included in this data set. The five class product groups clouds into five classes labeled low, middle, high, vertical, and clear. The 11 class product groups clouds into 11 classes based on cloud types. The products cover the period from 1-31 July 2001 and cover varying portions of the western United States and Eastern Pacific Ocean. The products are available at NOAA-14 satellite overpass times which during DYCOMS-II were typically 1200-1500 UTC and 2300-0300 UTC. The products were acquired from the NRL.
