Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) Cloud Top Height V1

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

The Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) Cloud Top Height dataset contains could top height images obtained from infrared observations of the 15th Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES-15) and the 10th Meteorological Satellite (METEOSAT-10) using the Algorithm Working Group (AWG) Cloud Height Algorithm (ACHA) for the Hurricane and Severe Storm sentinel (HS3) field campaign. Goals for the HS3 field campaign included assessing the relative roles of large-scale environment and storm-scale internal processes, addressing the controversial role of the Saharan Air Layer (SAL) in tropical storm formation and intensification, and the role of deep convection in the inner-core region of storms. The images are available for dates between August 14, 2014 and October 3, 2014 at 15 minutes intervals in PNG format.
