Processing and analysis of large volumes of satellite-derived thermal infrared data
Date of Original Version
Reducing the large volume of TIROS-N series advanced very high resolution radiometer-derived data to a practical size for application to regional physical oceanographic studies is a formidable task. Such data exist on a global basis for January 1979 to the present at approximately 4km resolution (global area coverage data approximately two passes per day) and in selected areas at high resolution (local area coverage and high-resolution picture transmission data, at approximately 1km resolution) for the same period. An approach that has been successful for a number of studies off the E coast of the US divided the processing into 2 procedures: preprocessing and data reduction. -from Authors
