- NOAA (ERL) Highly Reflective Cloud (HRC) Analyses, monthly 1971-1985
NOAA has computed monthly total and normalized monthly total grids
from daily 1-degree grids of highly reflective clouds (HRC) for
January 1971 to December 1985. In addition to these grids, there are
grids indicating the number of missing days in the monthly total
grids, and long term means and standard deviations of normalized
monthly total grids.
These data are based on once daily visible pictures from orbiting
satellites. The pictures were manually inspected for highly
reflective clouds. If a 1-degree latitude-longitude square was
dominated by such clouds that were likely to be associated with
precipitation, a "yes" was recorded for the square.
