BOREAS RSS-14 GOES-8 Level-1a Visible, Infrared and Water Vapor Images
Entry ID: BOREAS_GOES81A_446_1

Abstract: The level-1a GOES-8 images cover 14-Jul-1995 to 21-Sep-1995 and 12-Feb-1996 to 03-Oct-1996. The data start out as three bands with 8-bit pixel values and end up as five bands with 10-bit pixel values. The differences between the level-1 and level-1a GOES-8 data are the formatting and packaging of the data. The images missing from the temporal series of level-1 GOES-8 images were zero-filled to create files consistent in size and format.
