  • 2005 Significant U.S. Hurricane Strikes Poster

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214564052-NOAA_NCEI.xml
    Description:

    The 2005 Significant U.S. Hurricane Strikes poster is one of two special edition posters for the Atlantic Hurricanes. This beautiful poster contains two sets of images of five hurricanes that impacted the United States in 2005, namely Katrina, Ophelia, Rita and Wilma. The images were created from NOAA's geostationary and polar-orbiting environmental satellites. In addition to the images, the poster has a map depicting the general track of each storm, a color temperature scale to read the hurricane cloud top temperatures, high level information on each storm, the category at time of landfall; as well as, a Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale. Poster size is 36"x32".

  • Arctic Satellite Composite Imagery - Infrared

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214598097-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    The Space Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison generates an infrared (~11.0 microns) Arctic satellite composite imagery. Using a mosaic of all satellite data available allows the benefits of both the timeliness and routine observations of geostationary satellites as well as the high latitude coverage of the polar orbiting satellites. The Arctic composites are made every three hours (synoptic hour) creating a total of eight images per day. More recently, Arctic composites are created every hour for a total of 24 images per day. Most input satellite observations included in the composite were procured within 15 minutes of the top of the synoptic hour. No image is more than +/- 50 minutes from the top of the synoptic hour. Geostationary and Polar orbiting satellites used to generate the composite can include: POES/NOAA, GOES -East and ?West, METOSAT, MTSAT, FY-2, Kalpana-1, and Terra/Aqua.

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214607136-SCIOPS.xml
    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.

    Description:

    This dataset is comprised of cloud micro-physical and radiation properties derived hourly from GOES-12 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.

    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. Each ISCCP-D2like file covers a single month. Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) is a key component of the Earth Observing System (EOS) program.
