Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) Tropical Overshooting Tops V1

The Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) Tropical Overshooting Tops dataset contains browse only data showing tropical overshooting tops derived from METEOSAT and GOES satellites for the Hurricane and Severe Storm sentinel (HS3) field campaign. Goals for the HS3 field campaign included assessing the relative roles of large-scale environment and storm-scale internal processes, addressing the controversial role of the Saharan Air Layer (SAL) in tropical storm formation and intensification, and the role of deep convection in the inner-core region of storms. The browse only data files are available for dates between August 14, 2014 and October 3, 2014 at 15 minutes intervals in KML format.
