MTSAT Rapid Scan Satellite Cloud Products Data

Summary

This dataset contains NASA Langley Satellite Cloud products from the High Altitude Ice Crystals - High Ice Water Content (HAIC-HIWC) project that took place in Darwin, Australia. These data are derived from the MTSAT-1R 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.
