DescriptionThe International Observatory of the North (ION) offers real-time reception, processing, and delivery of imagery and information products from a variety of polar-orbiting satellites. Currently, ION receives real-time data from NASA's EOS Terra and Aqua Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer; MODIS (since August 2001) and NOAA's operational satellites carrying the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer; AVHRR (since August 1993). Our high-latitude locality affords enhanced reception opportunities for the polar-orbiting satellites we track; on average, ION receives ~20 AVHRR passes and 15 MODIS passes per day. ION offers customized image processing, algorithm development and delivery of data in near-real-time as well as an extensive archive of MODIS and AVHRR over the western Arctic. A growing collection of Landsat data is also available.
