Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) Dust Aerosol Optical Thickness Imagery V1

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

The Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) Dust Aerosol Optical Thickness Imagery dataset consists of browse only imagery showing dust aerosol optical thickness and wind speed/direction from the Goddard Earth Observing System Model, version 5 (GEOS-5). These data are used to see how the Saharan Air Layer (SAL) affects hurricane development during the Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) field campaign. Goals for the HS3 field campaign included assessing the relative roles of large-scale environmental and storm-scale internal processes, addressing the controversial role of the SAL in tropical storm formation and intensification, and the role of deep convection in the inner-core region of storms. The browse only data files are available for dates between August 11, 2014 and October 5, 2014 at 3-hour intervals in PNG format.
