Welcome to the Data Challenge Data Depot

Dear Solvers, thank you for accepting our challenge. In this Challenge’s data set, we’ve included allowable unclassified NGA, as well as data from other sources to represent a fuller picture of the “disparate” nature of a particular NGA data set. The “disparate-ness” can be characterized by the diversity and volume of:

LANSAT Data Landsat sensors record reflected and emitted energy from Earth in various wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum. The electromagnetic spectrum includes all forms of radiated energy from tiny gamma rays and x-rays all the way to huge radio waves. The human eye is sensitive to the visible wavelenghts of this spectrum; we can see color, or reflected light, ranging from violet to red. GEOTIFF

GOES Soundings are produced once per hour. Both GOES-8 and GOES-9 each have two Sounder sector scans per hour. Atmospheric Soundings are produced from all of these four scans. Gradient winds (essentially geostrophic winds, since they are generated from the height field gradients) are then produced at ten levels for each of the sectors. The gradient winds are then co-located with each sounding, which is followed by a parameter generation program which accesses this data and produces a vast array of information pertaining to both the GOES soundings and the AVN first guess sounding.
