Comprehensive Large Array-data Stewardship System (CLASS)
Entry ID: NOAA-CLASS
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: CLASS is a web-based data archive and distribution system for NOAA?s
environmental data. It is NOAA's premier online facility for the distribution
of NOAA and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) operational environmental
satellite data (Geostationary and Polar (GOES and POES), and DMSP) and derived
data products. CLASS is evolving to support additional satellite data streams,
such as MetOp, EOS/MODIS, NPP, and NPOESS, and NOAA's in situ environmental
sensors, such as NEXRAD, USCRN, COOP/NERON, and oceanographic sensors and
buoys, plus geophysical and solar environmental data. CLASS is in its second
year of a major 10-year growth program, adding new data sets and functionality
to support a broader user base.
