Summary: This CD-ROM is produced by the European Space Agency (ESA) and contains land surface temperature demonstration products as estimated from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) sensor onboard the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) series of polar orbiters. The data used are from the full resolution (1 km) composites (decade) data set processed in the framework of the 1 km AVHRR Global Land Data Set collaborative project of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) EROS Data Centre (EDC), NOAA, NASA, ESA under the guidance of IGBP and CEOS. This CD-ROM contains excerpts from the full resolution land surface temperature (1 km pixel) data set over Europe, as well as so called world monthly climatic values (0.5 x 0.5 grid). The full processed data set going from July 1992 to June 1993. This CD-ROM contains general information documents (Readme, Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD), and Input Output Data Document (IODD)) and data files (Full Resolution Land Surface Temperature and Climatic Land Surface Temperature). The data files included in this CD-ROM consist of two types: Excerpts at full resolution (1 km) of the Land Surface Temperature fields over Europe covering the following area extent: Climatic Land Surface Temperatures over a month and a square half degree grid. The area covered is the whole globe.
