Global Brightness Temperature imagery animations from the Cloud Archive User Service project. This project produced a long time-series of global thermal infra-red imagery of the Earth using data from operational meteorological satellites, which was used in validating atmospheric General Circulation Models.
The higher resolution CLAUS data were used to create monthly animations for educational purposes. The movie collection spans the period 1983-1994.
For detailed information about the CLAUS data (processing, quality, etc) please see available documentation (Docs).

Data obtained during the period from April 1997 to December 1999 by satellites. Latest version of the CLAUS data (4.7) was acquired as is from Dr Gary Robinson (University of Reading) in December 2009, and is stored in the BADC archive. Data updates from June 2006 to June 2009 were obtained from the data supplier in May 2013.
Please see CLAUS User Guide for full details.
The CLAUS monthly animations are stored in Apple's Quicktime format, using Photo JPEG (high) compression. To help with geographical orientation land is slightly embossed. A brightness temperature key and the date/time of the individual images are printed on the bottom right-hand corner.
