Description 
Summary

The TSM and CCP data present in this collection have been taken by AVHRR sensors (Aboard NOAA satellites) and CZCS (Nimbus 7 satellites). Their selection has been carried out following criteria by the observation of quicklooks available at the satellite data receiving station at Maspalomas (Gran Canaria). Later the data were processed to the parameters quoted herein after eliminating the effects of atmospheric extinction and geometric distortion of the original data. In total 36 CCP pictures are available (9 in 1982, 27 in 1983) and 5 TSM pictures (5 in 1988). The TSM and CCp satellite pictures are in ERDAS format.
