Satellite Datasets in Development

NCEI performs data stewardship and climate analysis using satellite data in the Products Branch of the Remote Sensing and Applications Division.

Ongoing Satellite Dataset Development includes:

Dataset Description Spatial Information Temporal Information Contact
Geostationary Surface Albedo Land surface albedo as derived from GOES-8, -9, -10, -11, -12, -13, and -15 visible channel data. 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

Daily and 10-day composite; 1995-2018


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; 1979–2017
