Joint Polar Satellite System -- CIMSS

The Algorithm Development Library ADL supports the development of operational Science and Data processing algorithms for Suomi NPP. The Library was developed by RAYTHEON and is being distributed here at the University of Wisconsin. The library contains the operational algorithms for all of the instruments contained on NPP and is perriodicly updated to follow the evolution of the algorithms. ADL is funded through NOAA JPSS.
