Abstract

The Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) is a broad-band, four to six-channel (depending on the model) scanner, sensing in the visible, near-infrared, and thermal infrared portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. This sensor is carried on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA's) Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES), beginning with TIROS-N in 1978.

AVHRR provides day and night imaging of land, water, and clouds as well as measurements of sea surface temperature, ice snow, and vegetation cover.

NEODAAS (NERC Earth Observation Data Acquisition and Analysis Service) Dundee Satellite Receiving Station retrieved data from the NOAA satellites and initially published the products. The data were transferred to CEDA when the Dundee Satellite Receiving Station (NEODAAS Dundee node) facility was closed to continue the long term archive.
