INFRARED GLOBAL GEOSTATIONARY COMPOSITE V1
Entry ID: globalir_1


Summary
Abstract: The Infrared Global Geostationary Composite dataset contains global composite images from the infrared channels of multiple weather satellites in geosynchronous orbit. These satellites include the Global Mobility Service (GMS) from Japan, Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) from the United States, NOAA satellites, and Meteorological Satellite (METEOSAT) from Europe spanning nearly the entire globe. The spatial resolution is 14 km before December 18, 2017 and 4 km thereafter with the data remapped into a Mercator projection. The data have not necessarily been cross calibrated between sensors. The data are available in AREA McIDAS format from June 4, 1995 to present.
