TCSP GOES VISIBLE AND INFRARED IMAGES V1

The TCSP GOES Visible and Infrared Images dataset was collected in support of the Tropical Cloud Systems and Processes (TCSP) mission, visible and infrared imagery from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite 11 and 12 (GOES11, GOES 12) was collected and archived. Two channels were archived: channel 1-- visible (0.65 microns), and channel 2-- infrared (11 microns). Data files in McIDAS format as well as browse images were created. The TCSP mission collected data for research and documentation of cyclogenesis, the interaction of temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind and air pressure that creates ideal birthing conditions for tropical storms, hurricanes and related phenomena. The goal of this mission was to help us better understand how hurricanes and other tropical storms are formed and intensify.
