Summary
Abstract: NOAA Satellite Technical Documentation (POD and GVI) is documentation available from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). This CD-ROM is for users of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellite (POES) data and products. On this CD- ROM, you will find detailed documentation about the NOAA POES program, descriptions of data formats, images produced from the data, and actual data set samples to help you understand the data formats and develop data processing software. The disc is arranged as a series of HTML files that are linked to each other through a welcome page. Also included are Internet addresses for the NCDC Web and ftp sites where the latest updates to the technical documentation are maintained. The two documents contained on the CD-ROM are: NOAA Polar Orbiter Data (POD) Users Guide, August 1997 revision - contains descriptions of the instruments on the NOAA POES series from TIROS-N through NOAA-14, the Level 1b data format that NOAA uses to distribute raw data to users, and derived data products including TOVS Soundings, Sea Surface Temperature (SST), Mapped GAC, and Radiation Budget. NOAA Global Vegetation Index Users Guide, July 1997 revision - describes the various products derived from NOAA POES data to monitor global vegetation growth and distribution.

Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
