Abstract

This CD-ROM is produced by the European Space Agency (ESA) and contains land surface temperature demonstration products as estimated from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) sensor onboard the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) series of polar orbiters. The data used are from the full resolution (1 km) composites (decade) data set processed in the framework of the "1 km AVHRR Global Land Data Set" collaborative project of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) EROS Data Centre (EDC), NOAA, NASA, ESA under the guidance of IGBP and CEOS. This CD-ROM contains excerpts from the full resolution land surface temperature (1 km pixel) data set over Europe, as well as so called world monthly "climatic values" (0.5 degree x 0.5 degree grid). The full processed data set runs from July 1992 to June 1993. This dataset contains excerpts at full resolution (1 km) of the land surface temperature fields over Europe

Process overview

This dataset was generated by a combination of instruments deployed on platforms and computations as detailed below.

Title DETAILS NEEDED - COMPUTATION CREATED FOR SATELLITE COMPOSITE. deployed on NOAA Satellite series - 7 to 14
Abstract This computation involved: DETAILS NEEDED - COMPUTATION CREATED FOR SATELLITE COMPOSITE. deployed on NOAA Satellite series - 7 to 14. ITOS (Improved TIROS Operational System) was the follow-on to the TIROS series. They were the second generation of operational polar orbiters. Once operational, the satellite's designator was change to NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmopheric Administration Satellite). The primary objective of the ITOS Series of Sun-synchronous meteorological satellites was to provide improved operational infrared and visual observations of Earth cloud cover for use in weather analysis and forecasting. Secondary objectives included measuring snow and ice and the sea surface, and gathering information on the vertical structure of temperature and moisture in the atmosphere on a regular daily basis. Additional instruments, starting with ITOS-D/NOAA -2, also provided both global daytime and nighttime daily direct readout real-time cloudcover data.
