    Description:

    The Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms (CAPS; "http://caps.ou.edu") was established at the University of Oklahoma in 1989 as one of the first 11 National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center. Its mission was, and remains the development of techniques for the computer-based prediction of high-impact local weather, such as individual spring and winter storms, with the NEXRAD (WSR-88D) Doppler radar serving as a key data source. Along the path toward fulfilling this mission, CAPS developed the Advanced Regional Prediction System (ARPS; "http://caps.ou.edu/ARPS"). The ARPS is a fully automated numerical prediction system designed for both research and operational application at scales ranging from continents down to cities. It includes a data ingest, quality control, and objective analysis package known as the ARPS Data Analysis System (ADAS; "http://www.caps.ou.edu/"); a single-Doppler radar parameter retrieval and 3DVAR/4DVAR data assimilation system; the prediction model itself; and a web-based data display and decision support system. The value of the ARPS was recognized in 1997, when CAPS received both the Discover Magazine Award for Technology Innovation as well as the Computerworld-Smithsonian Award.

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1237207593-LARC_ASDC.xml
    Description:

    This dataset is comprised of cloud micro-physical and radiation properties derived hourly from GOES-10 geostationary satellite imager data using LaRC’s SATCORPS (SATellite ClOud and Radiation Property retrieval System) algorithms in support of the CERES project. The cloud micro-physical and radiation properties from each active geostationary satellite are merged together to create hourly global cloud properties that are used to estimate fluxes between CERES instrument measurements to account for the changing diurnal cycle. The dataset is arranged as files for each hour and in netCDF-4 format. The observations are at 4-km resolution (at nadir) and are sub-sampled to 8 km.

  • CERES GEO Cloud Retrievals in ISCCP-D2like Format Daytime Edition3A

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C7019528-LARC_ASDC.xml
    Description:

    The Monthly Gridded Cloud Averages (ISCCP-D2like-GEO) data product contains monthly and monthly 3-hourly (GMT-based) gridded regional mean geostationary satellite (GEO) cloud properties as a function of 18 cloud types, similar to the ISCCP D2 product, where the cloud properties are stratified by pressure, optical depth, and phase. The ISCCP-D2like-GEO product is a 5-satellite, daytime 3-hourly GMT, 8-km nominal resolution, geostationary-only cloud product limited to to . The ISCCP-D2like-GEO is a daytime-only product, where the cloud retrievals incorporate only the visible and IR channels common to all geostationary satellites for spatial consistency. Each ISCCP-D2like file covers a single month.606011 Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) is a key component of the Earth Observing System (EOS) program. The CERES instruments provide radiometric measurements of the Earth's atmosphere from three broadband channels. The CERES missions are a follow-on to the successful Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) mission. The first CERES instrument (PFM) was launched on November 27, 1997 as part of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM). Two CERES instruments (FM1 and FM2) were launched into polar orbit on board the EOS flagship Terra on December 18, 1999. Two additional CERES instruments (FM3 and FM4) were launched on board EOS Aqua on May 4, 2002. The newest CERES instrument (FM5) was launched on board the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite on October 28, 2011.

  • CERES MODIS and GEO Cloud Retrievals in ISCCP-D2like Format Daytime Edition3A

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C7019527-LARC_ASDC.xml
    Description:

    The Monthly Gridded Cloud Averages (ISCCP-D2like-Mrg) data product contains monthly and monthly 3-hourly (GMT-based) gridded regional mean cloud properties as a function of 18 cloud types, similar to the ISCCP D2 product, where the cloud properties are stratified by pressure, optical depth, and phase. The Mrg product combines daytime cloud properties from Terra-MODIS (10:30 AM local equator crossing time LECT), Aqua-MODIS (1:30 PM LECT), and geostationary satellites (GEO) to provide the most diurnally complete daytime ISCCP-D2like product. The GEO cloud properties have been normalized with MODIS for diurnal consistency. The CERES MODIS-derived cloud properties are not the official NASA MODIS cloud retrievals, but are based on the CERES cloud working group retrievals that are also available in other CERES products. The CERES MODIS-derived cloud properties provide coverage from pole to pole. The 3-hourly GMT-based GEO cloud properties come from five satellites at 8km nominal resolution with coverage limited to to . The GEO daytime cloud retrievals incorporate only a visible and IR channel common to all geostationary satellites for spatial consistency. The geostationary calibration is normalized to Terra-MODIS.

  • COMET Case Study 025: Salt Lake City Tornado/Long Island Flood 1999 Data at UCAR/JOSS/NOAA/CODIAC

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214584299-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    Case 025 represents one of the most devastating weather events in Utah's history. On August 11th 1999 a tornado moved through downtown Salt Lake City between 18:45 and 18:55 UTC. The tornado damage was rated as F2 on the Fujita scale, and was resonsible for the first recorded tornado death in the state's history and dozens of injuries. Hail up to 1.5 inches in diameter was also reported from this storm. In addition, on the East Coast, flash floods impacted Long Island. Between 13Z and 17Z on August 11, clusters of thunderstorms formed along a warm front. As they moved very slowly east, they produced heavy rain that caused flash flooding from Deer Park to Manorville, NY. Rainfall rates estimated at 1 to 2 inches per hour for up to 3 hours generated rainfall totals from 3 to 5 inches. Water, rapidly accumulating in low-lying areas, swept cars away and trapped people in their vehicles. For more information, see: http://data.eol.ucar.edu/codiac/projs?COMET_CASE_025

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214584341-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    Case 026 follows an early winter storm moving onshore in thePacific Northwest on November 24, 1999. The storm brought heavy precipitation, while the associated cold front brought strong winds to the coasts of Oregon and Washington. The north Oregon coastline reported high winds November 24, as Conon Beach reported wind of 55-60 knots with gusts to 69 knots, while Arch Cape also reported gusts to 69 knots. The northern Oregon coast reported up to 10 inches of rain, causing flodding and landslides. For more information, see: http://data.eol.ucar.edu/codiac/projs?COMET_CASE_026

  • COMET Case Study 029: Montana Fire Weather-Dry Cold Front 1999 Data at UCAR/JOSS/NOAA/CODIAC

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214584362-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    A dry cold front passed through eastern Montana on 31 October 1999 bringing in a strong northwest wind behind it. Warmer and drier than normal conditions existed in the region at this time, so with the addition of strong wind, the fire danger rose greatly. Sustained winds of 50+ knots and gusts to near 80 knots were reported in eastern Montana, driving fires near the towns of Outlook and Wolf Point. Over $12 million in damages are estimated statewide from the strong wind and fires. For more information, see: http://data.eol.ucar.edu/codiac/projs?COMET_CASE_029
