Dataset brief description

US GLOBEC Georges Bank 1995 full resolution AVHRR images zoom domain

Dataset description

Real time MCSST US GLOBEC Georges Bank full resolution zoom domain for 1995. During the time of the project, images provided to the ships were reviewed and those images with little cloud cover over Georges Bank were reviewed. (These image files were assigned a file extent (file type) of ".revd". When ships were not out on cruise reviewing did not take place. The images were remapped to the same GB_Zoom region (almost full resolution) and were given a file extent of ".gbs".
