Wisconsin HIRS 6.5 Year Cloud Climatology
Entry ID: WYLIE_HIRS_CLIMATOLOGY


Summary
Abstract: [Summary adapted from Donald Wylie's Home Page]

Statistics on clouds have been compiled from the HIRS sensors on the
NOAA satellites since June 1989. This is an on going process and will
be updated in the future. The HIRS channels with partial CO2
absorption from 13-15 microns, provides a better means of detecting
semi-transparent clouds than other cloud analyses The method has also
been referred ... View entire text
