The images were collected to create a database. All images were processed at NOAA/NESDIS in Washington. Each image is recorded in BSQ format and contains 3 separate files stored on diskette. The size of the image is 512 x 512 pixels with a resolution of about 1 km. Each pixel has a one byte value (0 - 255). All images are in Mercator projection. The images did not go through registration and have some spatial errors. The spatial resolution of the images is about 1 km. All images were made during fine weather. In 1987 there were 5 images (months: Mar, Jun, Aug); in 1989 25 images (months: Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Dec); in 1990 40 images (months: Feb, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Oct, Nov, Dec); in 1991 27 images (months: Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep); and in 1992 17 images (months: May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep).
