DYCOMS-II: DMSP SSM/I Multisensor Composite Imagery


The DMSP SSM/I Multisensor Composite Imagery (JPG) is one of several satellite products collected as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus Phase-II: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project field catalog operated by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL: The images were produced by the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I). Images are available at DMSP satellite overpass times which during DYCOMS II were typically around 01-06 UTC and 14-19 UTC. The products included in each file include GOES-10 infrared and water vapor products and DMSP wind and vapor products. The products cover the period from 1-30 July 2001 and cover the region from about 25-50 N and 110-140 W. The products were acquired from the NRL. All images are in JPG format.
