BOREAS RSS-14 GOES-7 LEVEL-1 VISIBLE, INFRARED, AND WATER VAPOR IMAGES
Get Data

Summary:

The level-1 BOREAS GOES-7 image data were collected by Remote Sensing Science Team 14 (RSS-14) personnel at Florida State University (FSU) and delivered to BORIS. The data cover the period of 01-Jan-1994 through 08-Jul-1995, with partial to complete coverage on the majority of the days. The data include three bands with eight-bit pixel values. No major problems with the data have been identified. Companion files include (1) an image inventory listing to inform users of the images that are available and (2) example thumbnail images.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/RSS/goes71/comp/RSS14_GOES7_L1.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
