Atmospheric CDRs

Atmospheric measurements of several global variables to help characterize the atmosphere at or just above the land and ocean surface as well as other upper air composition variables. 

NOAA CDRs are derived from a variety of satellites and instruments. The launch, maintenance and decommissioning of satellites can be found on theWMO's Observing Systems Capability Analysis and Review Tool (OSCAR).  

NOAA Satellites 

As satellites or instruments change, there will be changes to how CDR data is derived and provided. Information on the impact of each individual CDR will be updated as resources allow. The Atmospheric NOAA CDRs are also available via Amazon Web Services.
