NOAA POES MSU Data

The NOAA POES MSU Data is one of several satellite data sets collected by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus Phase II: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project. Included in the data set are measurements from the Microwave Sounding Unit (MSU) system which is part of the TIROS Operational Vertical Sounder (TOVS) instrument suite aboard the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES). The data cover the period from 11 - 28 July 2001. Data are available at POES satellite overpass times. These data were acquired from the NOAA Satellite Active Archive (http://www.saa.noaa.gov) and are in level1B format. Any passes that had any portion over the DYCOMS-II region (26-37N and 115-127W) are included within this data set.
