GOES-16 Satellite Cloud Products Data

This dataset contains NASA Langley Satellite Cloud products from the High Ice Water Content (HIWC) Radar study that took place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Palmdale, California; and Kona, Hawaii. These data are derived from the GOES-16 satellite and are pixel-level cloud products. NASA-Langley cloud and radiation products are produced using Satellite Cloud Observations and Radiative Property retrieval System (SatCORPS). The domain for these products moved as the project moved from one location to the next location. Florida, Baja California, Baja California Extended, and Hawaii are the domains for this dataset. The data files are in netCDF format and are grouped into tar files by day and separated by the domain.
