This electronic book on CD-ROM presents a collection of satellite photographs of ocean events collected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). These photographs are from the updated NOAA collection of images of dramatic storms and weather phenomena. Ocean products (OCE) typically include sea surface temperature plots, especially when a large event (such as a hurricane) causes a disruption in the normal temperature distribution, and single-channel imagery of oil spills.
The Operational Significant Event Imagery (OSEI) team produces high-resolution, detailed imagery of significant environmental events which are visible in remotely-sensed data available at the NOAA Science Center in Suitland, Maryland. NOAA provides worldwide images of current events, dust storms, fire events, flood events, snow cover and icebergs, severe weather and thunderstorms, unique events, volcanoes, thunderstorms, and large storm events.
In addition to the original image files, our unique "IMAGE GALLERY" in Acrobat PDF format reproduces the photos in a "photo album" suitable for quick full-screen browsing! Many of the photos are accompanied by the NOAA caption. This format was designed to mimic the look and "feel" of a real book.
Our CD-ROMs are privately-compiled collections of official public domain U.S. government files and documents - they are not produced by the federal government. They are designed to provide a convenient user-friendly reference work, utilizing the benefits of the Acrobat format to uniformly present thousands of pages that can be rapidly reviewed, searched, or printed without untold hours of tedious searching and downloading. Vast archives of important public domain government information that might otherwise remain inaccessible are available for instant review no matter where you are. This book-on-a-disc makes a superb reference work for weather and storm enthusiasts, libraries, researchers, schools, students, and home reference!
