    Description:

    There are several aerosol products produced from the NOAA TIROS/N AVHRR data set. The Aerosol Monthly Mean Field File contains total column aerosol optical thickness retrievals calculated from channel 2 albedo observations using the SST cloud clearing algorithm. The daily data are assembled and processed for each month to generate a monthly mean field of optical thickness. The Aerosol Daily Summary Table contains total column aerosol optical thickness retrievals calculated from channel 2 albedo observations using the SST cloud clearing algorithm. The daily data consist of statistical summaries of each 10 X 10 degree latitude/longitude box. The Aerosol Weekly 100km Analyzed Field File contains total column aerosol optical thickness retrievals calculated from channel 2 albedo observations using the SST cloud clearing algorithm. The analyzed weekly fields are at 100km resolution. The Aerosol SST Observation File contains SST retrievals and total column aerosol optical thickness retrievals calculated from channel 2 albedo observations using the SST cloud clearing algorithm. The Aerosol Retrospective Matchup Data base contains total column aerosol optical thickness retrievals calculated from channel 2 albedo observations using the SST cloud clearing algorithm matched with sun photometer observations onboard ships.

  • Antarctic Global Area Coverage NOAA AVHRR infrared data/imagery

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214608744-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    The AMRC also collected a set of NOAA Polar Orbiting AVHRR Global Area Coverage (GAC) and Local Area Coverage (LAC) images from 7 December 1994 through August 1995, with scattered coverage to 26 March 1996. This lower resolution data set (three kilometers by five kilometers) is available from AMRC, though only the infrared window channel was archived.

  • Antarctic Local Area Coverage NOAA AVHRR data/imagery

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214608760-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    The AMRC has been collecting Local Area Coverage (LAC) images from 17 October 1998 to present of the Ronne Ice Shelf Iceberg (scattered coverage when there is partially or totally clear fields of view). This data is much like the HRPT data, in that it is 1 km resolution with all five channels of the AVHRR instrument. Beginning 30 March 1999, AMRC began archiving all available LAC images over the Antarctic continent.

  • Arctic & Antarctic Research Center (AARC) AVHRR and HRPT Direct Readout Radiance Data from McMurdo and Palmer Stations, Antarctica

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214584927-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    AVHRR HRPT level 0 raw telemetry data are acquired at the Arctic and Antarctic Research Center (AARC) on selective passes by satellite receivers located at McMurdo Station, Antarctica (77 degrees, 51 minutes S, 166 degrees, 40 minutes E.) and Palmer Station, Antarctic Peninsula (64 degrees, 46 minutes S, 64 degrees, 4 minutes W.) Generally, most of the Antarctic continent and its coastline are covered daily. Swaths are 2250 kilometers long and generally start or end over the extreme South Pacific Ocean adjacent to the Ross Sea. Data collection from Palmer Station covers the land areas of West Antarctica, Southern South America, the South Atlantic including the Falkland Islands and the South Orkney Islands, and the Drake Passage and portions of the South Pacific Ocean. Continuous data collection at the McMurdo Station began on 26 October 1987. Data are also archived for 30 October 1985 - 2 December 1985 and for 30 October 1986 - 30 January 1987. Continuous data collection began at the Palmer Station 3 August 1989. The data resolution is 1100 meters at subtrack, 4000 - 6000 meters at limb; 360 scans per minute. Satellite revisit time is twice daily, however, due to the proximity to the South Pole, 14 passes a day are received at McMurdo and 10 passes a day are received at Palmer from each spacecraft. Data are acquired, archived, processed for requesters, and distributed by the Arctic & Antarctic Research Center (AARC). Processing of the raw data will depend on the requirements of the requester, but a typical sequence might be as follows: + Reformat raw data for extraction; up to 10 missing scan lines can be interpolated by the software. + Calibrate the reformatted data to convert from brightness values to temperature values. + Apply the moisture/atmospheric correction. + Register selected data to the user-specified grid. + Transfer to user-specified medium. Some examples are tape, diskette, photographic product, or file format for electronic transfer. About 95 percent of the presently archived data have been cataloged on our online directory. Data dropouts, caused by transmission interference due to solar flare activity, occur in some images; the processing software can smooth the data if fewer than 10 scan lines are missing. All archived images contain usable data. Processed data are binary byte arrays of user-defined size. Full spacecraft attitude correction and earth correction routines are applied to the raw data to create the products. Orbital elements, equator crossings, altitude and period of the spacecraft are generated for the raw data using the AARC scientific workstation. Data products can be gridded to a user-specified grid. Data are also available in raw form (10 bits of information stored in a 16 bit word) on 4mm DDS2 or DDS3 DAT cassettes or DLT7000 tapes. Users would need access to an 4mm DAT or DLT7000 reader. An alternative method to access the digital archive is to use the Sun Workstations located at the AARC, Scripps Institution of Oceanography. AARC personnel can be contacted for access information.

  • Auto-Navigated, Calibrated, Geocoded NOAA_AVHRR data for Central Europe

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214585756-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    The available data set comprises NDVI data of Central Europe derived from NOAA-AVHRR and browse products; on-line access is offered by means of the Intelligent Satellite Data Information System ISIS, a service of the DFD within DLR at Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. These regularly produced CE data are DFD pathfinder products. The images consist of 5 bands; the data are 8-bit reduced, pre-launch calibrated and geocoded. The projection type is Mercator with Center Latitude 50.4 N and Center Longitude 10 E. Georeferencing of the image data is performed automatically by means of coastline-, borderline- and grid data from the World Data Base 2. The Interpolation Method is Nearest Neighbor. All datasets have the size of 1350 lines * 1135 columns; 15.3 MByte. Pixel Size for the images is 1.0 km * 1.0 km. The products aere computed daily, using the maximum elevation afternoon pass. Used data format is VFF Raster Standard Format; for Quicklooks it is JPEG-Format. Via ISIS it is possible to copy the data online; the data are then compressed with UNIX-COMPRESS. For further information look at the `infoboard` on ISIS. Access to the data: On-line access to data and information is provided by the Intelligent Satellite Data Information System ISIS, developed by DLR as a client / server configuration. It is representing the interface of DLR-DFD to users, providing an easy access to catalogue-, inventory-, browse- and general textual information. The URl is: 'http://www.dlr.de/caf/'. Relevant procedures to access this system are described in a separate entry in the catagory `Data Center` and may be queried by interested people. Access presumes the installation of the client configuration which can be easily done by the user on his computer configuration.

  • AVHRR 1-km Global Land 10-Day Composites

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1220566288-USGS_LTA.xml
    Description:

    The Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) 1-km Global Land 10-Day Composites data set project is a component of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) AVHRR Pathfinder Program. The project is a collaborative effort between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), NASA, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the European Space Agency (ESA), Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), and 30 international ground receiving stations. The project represents an international effort to archive and distribute the 1-km AVHRR composites of the entire global land surface to scientific researchers and to the general public. The data set is comprised of a time series of global 10-day normalized difference vegetation index composites. The composites are generated from radiometrically calibrated, atmospherically corrected, and geometrically corrected daily AVHRR observations. The time series begins in April 1992 and continues for specific time periods.
