7. DATASET OVERVIEW

7.1 Abstract

The CEOP satellite datasets are geo-coded data resampled to regular latitude longitude grid on three type scales: reference site scale, monsoon scale, and global scale. It is easy to compare satellite data with in-situ measurement and or model output. Also, the satellite datasets include radiance data and geo-physical parameter such as soil moisture, vegetation index, water vapor, precipitation, sea surface temperature and so on, which are retrieved from data of MODIS, AMSR-E, SSM/I, PR, TMI, AVNIR2, PALSAR and PRISM.

The CEOP-MODIS datasets are generated on 35 reference sites, 5 monsoon regions and global during EOP-3 date period.
