  • Global three-hourly cloud products as produced for the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York. The data on are the ISCCP Stage D2 data (ISCCP-D2), at 280 km spatial resolution. There are 202 variables contained within the dataset, which is at three-hourly temporal resolution. The data available at the time of publication of this dataset record in this archive have been obtained from the NASA Atmospheric Data Center (ASDC) and begin in July 1983 and extend to June 2006. A fuller dataset is available directly from ASDC - see link on this record. The data are from a number of radiometers deployed on NOAA, GOES (Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite), METEOSAT, GMS and INSAT satellites operational during this period. This dataset is public. The data periods for the various satellite instruments used within this generation of this dataset are given below: Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) versions 1,2 and 3: - AVHRR on NOAA-7: 01/07/1983 to 31/01/1985 - AVHRR on NOAA-8: 01/10/1983 to 24/06/1984 - AVHRR on NOAA-9: 01/02/1985 to 08/11/1988 - AVHRR on NOAA-10: 17/11/1986 to 30/08/1991 - AVHRR on NOAA-11: 30/06/1997 to 18/10/1998 - AVHRR/2 on NOAA-12: 01/09/1991 to 31/12/1998 - AVHRR/2 on NOAA-14: 01/02/1995 to 30/09/2001 - AVHRR/3 on NOAA-15: 01/01/1999 to 31/07/2000 - AVHRR/3 on NOAA-16: 01/10/2001 to 30/06/2005 - AVHRR/3 on NOAA-17: 01/07/2002 to 30/06/2005 Very High Resolution Radiometer (VHRR): - VHRR data on INSAT-1 series (INSAT-1A to 1D): 01/04/1988 to 31/03/1989 GOES-Imager: - GOES-Imager data on GOES-10: 01/08/1998 to 30/06/2005 - GOES-Imager data on GOES-12: 01/04/2003 to 30/06/2005 Multispectral Imaging Radiometer (MIR): - MIR data on METEOSAT-2: 01/07/1983 to 11/08/1988 - MIR data on METEOSAT-3: 11/08/1988 to 25/01/1991 - MIR data on METEOSAT-4 : 19/06/1989 to 30/06/1991 METEOSAT Visible and IR Imager (MVIRI): - MVIRI data on METEOSAT-5: 01/02/1994 to 30/06/2005 - MVIRI data on METEOSAT-6: 01/03/1997 to 31/05/1998 Visible and Infrared Spin-Scan Radiometer (VISSR) data: - VISSR data on GMS-1: 21/01/1984 to 30/06/1984 - VISSR data on GMS-2: 01/07/1983 to 27/091984 - VISSR data on GMS-3: 27/09/1984 to 04/12/1989 - VISSR data on GMS-4: 04/12/1989 to 30/06/1991 - VISSR data on GMS-5: 01/06/1995 to 30/04/2003 - VISSR data on GOES-5: 01/07/1983 to 30/07/1984 - VISSR data on GOES-6: 01/07/1983 to 21/01/1989 - VISSR data on GOES-7: 26/04/1987 to 30/06/1991 - VISSR data on GOES-8: 01/05/1995 to 31/03/2003 - VISSR data on GOES-9: 01/01/1996 to 30/06/2005 For further information about the satellites and their instruments please see the linked documentation pages.

  • The International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) was based at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York. ISCCP was sponsored by the World Climate Research Programme for the purpose of "collecting and analysing satellite radiance measurements to infer the global distribution of cloud radiative properties and their diurnal and seasonal variations". This dataset contains the global monthly cloud analysis products (ISCCP-C2), at 250 km spatial resolution. They are derived from monthly averages of data taken with three-hour resolution. The products include monthly averages of calibrated radiances, cloud detection results, and cloud and surface properties from radiative analysis. There are 72 variables contained within the data set. The data available at the time of publication begin in July 1983 and extend through December 1990.

ISCCP was sponsored by the World Climate Research Programme for the purpose of "collecting and analyzing satellite radiance measurements to infer the global distribution of cloud radiative properties and their diurnal and seasonal variations". This dataset collection contains the global three-hourly cloud products (ISCCP-D1), global monthly cloud products (ISCCP-D2), using the revised algorithm, at 280 km spatial resolution and and monthly cloud analysis products (ISCCP-C2) at 250 km spatial resolution. There are more than 200 variables contained within the datasets. Note - that that the temporal range of the datasets presented here are contain data available from the NASA Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) covers the full extent available at the time of the dataset publication in the CEDA archives, begin in July 1983 and extend through to December 1999 (D1), 2006 (D2) and 1990 (C1). Fuller versions of the datasets are available from ASDC directly. These limited copies were obtained to aid researcher access within the UK community at the time.
