GOES-13 Imager 1 km Visible Data (MciDAS Format)



This dataset contains full resolution GOES-13 satellite data collected during the PREDICT project. The University of Wisconsin Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) made available the full resolution GOES-13 imager data to the PREDICT investigators. NCAR/EOL collected and archived these data for access after the campaign. During PREDICT, GOES-13 was the operational GOES-East satellite, stationed at 75W. These data are in AREA file format and consist of 1km vis channel data files. Individual files exist for each of the original sector scans during the period 15 August - 30 September 2010, including Routine operations, Rapid Scan Operations (RSO) and Super-rapid Scan Operations (SRSO). All files are gzip'ed to minimize size and download time. Each filename contains the UTC date/time stamp at which the sector was broadcast. Please note that Eclipse/Keep-out zone operations were underway during most of this period affecting imagery normally collected between about 04 - 0630 UTC. For more information on the GOES spacecraft operations, please see: .
