Polar Composite Satellite Imagery

Equatorial Mercator Composites Product shows a composited Visible, Infrared or Water Vapor image of the Equatorial Tropics from about 40North Latitude to 40 South Latitude.

These Polar Mapped Mosaic composite satellite images are generated using composite AVHRR GAC data gathered onboard NOAA's polar orbiting satellites (NOAA-18 and NOAA-19). These images are created once per day.

Hemisphere Composites Product shows a composited Visible, Infrared or Water Vapor image of the Northern Hemisphere or Southern Hemisphere.

These Polar Mapped Mosaic composite satellite images are generated using composite AVHRR GAC data gathered onboard NOAA's polar orbiting satellites (NOAA-18 and NOAA-19). These images are created once per day.
