GOES-14 Imager 1 km Channel 1 (Visible) Data (MciDAS Format)



This dataset contains 1-km resolution GOES-14 visible channel satellite data collected during the PECAN project. GOES-14 was brought out of storage during the first part of PECAN (1-12 June) for Super Rapid Scan Operations for GOES-R. These data are in McIDAS AREA file format and were provided by CIRA at Colorado State University. During this period SRSO would be called daily and the regional focus may vary from day to day depending on the weather. During SRSOR operations data are available every minute. NCAR/EOL collected and archived these data. During PECAN, GOES-14 was stationed at 105W. All files are combined into hourly tar files to minimize size and download time. Each filename contains the UTC date/time stamp at which the sector was broadcast.
