GOES-16 Convective Cloud Products

This dataset detects and characterizes deep convective clouds, lightning activity, and potential locations of high ice water content using GOES-16 satellite imagery in support of the July 2022 NASA High Ice Water Content (HIWC 2022) campaign. GOES-16 Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) and Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) data are processed at 5-minute intervals and ~ 2 km pixel spacing over a geographic domain encompassing all of the DC-8 research flights using algorithms and statistical models developed at NASA Langley Research Center. The HIWC 2022 campaign was based in Jacksonville, Florida.
