Eight Mesh Surface Temperature Analysis from USAF Combat Climatology Center (AFCCC)
Entry ID: USAFETAC_ANLST

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Consists of analyses of surface temperatures (in degrees Kelvin to
tenths) on a 512 X 512 subset of the eighth mesh grid. It is produced
eight times daily on each synoptic hour. Analyses serve as background
data for comparison with new satellite data to locate relatively cold
areas that represent clouds. Analyses use latest surface observations
and synoptic reports updated every 3 hours for land areas and every 12
hours (or more) for ocean areas. Temperatures represent ambient air
temperatures over land and sea surface temperatures over the ocean.
Elements reported are: Surface Temperature
