Summary
Abstract: M5 - GOES 8 Visible and Infrared Images

The Southern Oxidants Study (SOS) conducted a major field research
campaign in Nashville/Middle Tennessee area in June and July 1994 and
1995. The goal of this study was to improve scientific understanding
of the processes that control the production and distribution of ozone
in the troposphere.

These data are a compilation of hourly GOES 8 hi-resolution visible (1
km) and IR (4 km) images collected during the 1995 Southern Oxidants
Study (SOS) Nashville/Middle Tennessee Ozone Study. Visible images
are provided for daytime hours only, and IR images are provided 24
hours per day.

The study was conducted from June 22, 1995 through July 20, 1995.
