Alert!
Due to an unscheduled power failures, our historical satellite imagery and cloud product gifs, before 13 Feb 2010, are temporarily unavailable.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
Alert!
Due to system maintenance, only current imagery is available. Imagery older than 30 days is not available this weekend. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

The Satellite ClOud and Radiation Property retrieval System (SatCORPS) is a comprehensive set of algorithms designed to retrieve cloud information from operational and research meteorological satellite imager data. The SatCORPS algorithms have been adapted to utilize imagery from polar-orbiting, geostationary, and precessing-orbit satellites using dedicated satellite intercalibration and spectral correction efforts. This website provides real-time access to cloud retrieval information. This information, in addition to being available in real-time and near-real-time for dedicated and part-time users, expands the frontiers of knowledge and understanding by providing critical data for research in various disciplines. These datasets are available to the American public in the form of both imagery and data-mining-ready binary files. The generation and distribution of these datasets are supported by the NASA CERES and various NASA ROSES programs, as well as the Department of Energy ARM and ASR Programs.
