Attention: NCEI HDSS Access System (HAS) is currently unavailable. Access to the affected systems should be restored by Monday, April 20. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Satellite Datasets in Development
Ongoing Satellite Dataset Development includes:
|Dataset||Description||Spatial Information||Temporal Information||Contact|
|Geostationary Surface Albedo||Land surface albedo as derived from GOES-8, GOES-10, and GOES-12 visible channel data. Ancillary input data include NCEP values for total column water vapor and ozone. This is NOAA's Level 2 contribution to an international SCOPE-CM project, which will produce a near-global Level 3 land surface albedo product from a constellation of 5 geostationary satellites.||Land only; 70N–70S, 160E–10W; 2km||10-day; 2000–2003|
|HIRS Temperature and Moisture Profiles||A neural network approach is applied to estimate atmospheric profiles of temperature and humidity from HIRS channel brightness temperatures.||Global; varying resolution||
Twice daily per satellite; 1979–2009
|AMSU Near-surface Temperature and Moisture||Retrievals of near surface temperature and moisture from AMSU. The goal is to use such data to help estimate surface heat fluxes over the ocean.||Ocean only; 1 deg.||
