Summary
Abstract: The ESMRN5IM data product consists of daily brightness temperature images on 70-mm photofacsimile film. Each frame contains a geographic grid and two groups of three parallel strips of imagery, each containing one-half the orbital data. The spatial coverage is identical in each group, but each strip has a different dynamic range for its gray scale: 100-200 K, 190-270 K, and 250-300 K, ... View entire text

Purpose: These images can be used to supplement the radiance data files from the ESMRN5L2 data product.
