Title: Antarctic High Resolution Picture Transmission NOAA data
Description:
Abstract:
At the AMRC offices in the Crary Science and Engineering Center at McMurdo Station, the AMRC collects and archives the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) polar orbiting High Resolution Picture Transmission (HRPT) images from the earth station there. This data is archived on tape and the tapes are periodically flown in from McMurdo to be added to the archive at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. This data includes all five channels of the AVHRR instrument along with the TIP data (HIRS and MSU, etc.). The AVHRR data is at 1-kilometer resolution since the images are from the HRPT signal. The AMRC has been archiving the NOAA polar orbiting data since 30 October 1992. We do have some data voids from 25 August 1993 to 23 Febuary 1994 and 2 November 1995 to October 1996.
