AMSR-E Convective Percent

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.
