Summary
Abstract: The "Global Tropical Cyclone ISCCP B1 Satellite Observations" (TC-B1) data consist of raw satellite observations derived from the ISCCP B1 data centered on historical tropical cyclones (TC). The data derive from the global constellation of geostationary satellites (GOES, GMS and Meteosat series) spanning 1983 through the present. The data are available at 3-hour intervals and are gridded to ... View entire text

Purpose: To provide a comprehensive set of satellite data for worldwide tropical cyclone research.

Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: The primary quantitative use of this data set is brightness temperatures from the IR Window Channel (IRWIN). Hence, on the accuracy of the IRWIN brightness temperatures is discussed. The calibration tested and corrected the initial ISCCP calibration. Corrections were made and are detailed by Knapp, K. R. (2007), Calibration of long-term geostationary infrared ... View entire text
