The AMSR-E Convective Percent (CP) product is shown. The CP ranges from 0 (completely non-convective) to 100 (completely convective). This product is mainly used in research but can occasionally be useful for operational use when other resources may be lacking. Basically it is a measure of the amount of ice in the atmospheric columns at each pixel. This can be used as a surrogate for convective intensity. There are some limitations, one of which is the zero flagged areas in the most intense convection (in NE Arkansas). See the SPoRT AMSR-E product summaries for more information.
