NASA SatCORPS Himawari Cloud Retrieval Data
This dataset contains the hourly 1.0 degree resolution cloud retrieval data from the Himawari satellite during SOCRATES. These data were produced by the NASA SatCORPS group in real time. The retrievals include broadband shortwave albedo, broadband longwave flux, cloud infrared emittance, cloud phase, cloud optical depth, effective particle radius or diameter, liquid or ice water path, cloud effective temperature, cloud top and bottom pressure, cloud effective pressure, cloud top and bottom height, cloud effective height, skin temperature, clear sky reflectance, infrared clear sky temperature, visible and near infrared reflectance, solar infrared temperature, infrared channel temperature, infrared mid-level water vapor, and the split-window channel temperature. The data are in NetCDF format.
