ISCCP DX/D1 Data for FIRE Marine Stratus Field Campaign

FIRE Marine Stratus took place from 30 June through 19 July 1987 off the southwest coast of California. The experiment area extended from about 25N to 50N latitude and from 115W to 160W longitude.

Selected variables from the ISCCP DX and D1 datasets are available here for display as GIF images, or for downloading to your local disk. ISCCP data for June 1987 is pending production, so only July 1987 data is available here. June 1987 will be added as soon as production is final. If you are downloading data, you may also wish to see the browse data format description. The full documentation for the ISCCP DX and D1 data is in ISCCP Documentation of Cloud Data (PDF).
