Using This Disc

This disc contains NSCAT SIRF image data and browse images. The web interface can be accessed by opening the "index.html" file at the top directory level of the disc.

The top panel of the main page contains three kinds of links:

  1. Links to software and documentation directories and this help file,

  2. Links to the providers of this data.

  3. Links to tables of Arctic or Antarctic data.

The bottom panel contains a link to email for additional information and information about the generation of this product.

The Arctic and Antarctic data tables each contain three types of links:

  1. The table header contains links to the directories actually containing the data;

  2. The main body of the table contains "X"s which are links to browse images of that data file. The "X"s indicate data availability.

  3. The last line of the table contains links to animations of each type of browse image.
