DMSP Infrared Imagery

The DMSP Infrared Imagery (JPG) is one of several satellite products collected as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus Phase-II: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project field catalog operated by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL: The images were produced by the Naval Pacific Meteorology and Oceanography Center (NPMOC) in San Diego, California from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) Infrared channel. Images are available at DMSP satellite overpass times which during DYCOMS-II were typically around 01-04 UTC and 14-17 UTC. The products cover the period from 1-31 July 2001 and cover the region from about 20-55 N and 105-150 W. The products were acquired from the NPMOC. All images are in JPG format.
