Arctic GOES / POES Composite Imagery: Day 1

Hourly NOAA GOES/POES composite imagery products are generated in the NOAA OSPO GEO System by using satellite imagery in GOES West/East, Meteosat, MTSAT, NOAA 18 & 19 AVHRR, Aqua/Terra, MetOp-A, MetOp-B, S-NPP, and future GOES and MTSAT satellites. The product algorithm was developed by Wisconsin Arctic project team led Dr. Matthew A. Lazzara (Kohrs, et al., 2013). The products cover five wavelengths, e.g., Infrared (~11.0 µm), Shortwave Infrared (~3.8 µm), Longwave Infrared (~12.0 µm), Water Vapor (~6.7 µm), and Visible (~0.6 µm), over the Arctic polar region of the globe. Arctic composite image products are delivered to users via ESPC DDS to AWIPS I and via OSPO web server.

The data on this page is generated on an hourly basis. As the day progresses, more data will become available.
