GOES-16 Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) Mesoscale Sector Data



This data set contains the mesoscale sector data from the GOES-16 Advanced Baseline Imager data collected during the VORTEX-SE 2017 field season. These data started on 23 March 2017. These include all mesoscale sectors taken during VORTEX-SE, so some data are not in the VORTEX-SE area of interest. This data set includes data from 16 spectral bands including two in the visible, four in the near-infrared, and ten in the infrared. These data are in NetCDF format.
