NOAA HRPT Satellite Data of Far East Region of Russia and Adjacent Areas since 1993Entry ID: SML_IACP_NOAA_HRPT_MAIN_DATA
Abstract: The SML_IACP_NOAA_HRPT_MAIN_DATA dataset contains imagery data from NOAA
Satellites received by Satellite Monitoring Laboratory of the Institute
of Automation an Control Processes under various research projects
of the ocean and marginal seas.
The data acquisition has begun on August 25, 1993, and is continuing
until now (2002-04-25). There are follow time intervals of data acquisition:
from ... 1993-08-25 to 1998-12-31 not regularly, since 1999-01-03 - every day.
The spatial coverage is Far Eastern Region of Russia and Adjacent Areas,
i.e. longitudes between 110 degrees and 180 degrees of East longitude
and latitudes between 20 degrees and 70 degrees of North latitude.
The spatial and temporal resolutions are usual for NOAA HRPT data.
All received frames of data during one receiving session ( the time of
satellite flying from 20 to 70 degrees of North latitude ) are put into
one data file.
The data product includes measurements from: Advanced Very High Resolution
Radiometer ( AVHRR ) - 5-6 Infrared (IR) and visible channels with 1.1 km
spatial resolution in nadir; High Resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder
( HIRS ) and Microwave Sounding Unit ( MSU/AMSU ) - 40 IR- and MW-channels
with spatial resolution 20-50 km; Stratospheric Sounding Unit ( SSU ).
The list of satellites ( sources of data ) includes all available NOAA
Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites since 1993, i.e. NOAA 9-12 and
The main parameters included in the dataset are sensor counts of
NOAA units mentioned above. They represent in fact such physical parameters
as infrared, microwave and visible radiance, presented in a form of integers
of various ranges ( e.g. 10-bit integers for AVHRR ).
The data product consists of more than 6000 files (at 2002-04-25),
which include satellite data during one receiving session. There are used
different forms of data packing for internal file format of acquiring data.
Nevertheless, all dataset files may be converted into Level 1b format.
The distribution of data is planned on CD-ROMs in any form, convenient
for users. Any additional information about presented dataset, file formats,
catalogue available, pictures observed and so on is available
by address http://www.satellite.dvo.ru and ftp://ftp.satellite.dvo.ru.
