GOES-13 Satellite Cloud Products Data

Summary

This dataset contains NASA Langley Satellite Cloud products from the High Ice Water Content (HIWC) Radar Study project that took place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. These data are derived from the GOES-13 satellite and are pixel-level cloud products. NASA-Langley cloud and radiation products are produced using the VISST (Visible Infrared Solar-infrared Split-Window Technique), SIST (Solar-infrared Infrared Split-Window Technique) and SINT (Solar-infrared Infrared Near-Infrared Technique). The data files are in netCDF format and are grouped into .tar files by day.
