Monthly Brightness Temperature (BT) Animations derived from high resolution BT images as part of the Cloud Archive User Service (CLAUS) Project.
Global Brightness Temperature imagery animations from the Cloud Archive User Service project. This project produced a long time-series of global thermal infra-red imagery of the Earth using data from operational meteorological satellites, which was used in validating atmospheric General Circulation Models. The higher resolution CLAUS data were used to create monthly animations for educational purposes. The movie collection spans the period 1983-1994. For detailed information about the CLAUS data (processing, quality, etc) please see available documentation (Docs).
