DYCOMS-II: NOAA POES AMSU-A Data

Summary

The NOAA POES AMSUA Data is one of several satellite data sets collected by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus Phase II: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project. Included in the data set are measurements from the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit-A (AMSU-A) system aboard the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES). The data cover the period from 7 - 28 July 2001. Data are available at POES satellite overpass times. These data were acquired from the NOAA Satellite Active Archive (http://www.saa.noaa.gov) and are in level1B format. Any passes that had any portion over the DYCOMS-II region (26-37N and 115-127W) are included within this data set.
