The GOES-R PLT Cloud Physics Lidar (CPL) dataset consists of backscatter coefficient, lidar depolarization ratio, layer top/base height, layer type, particulate extinction coefficient, ice water content, and layer/cumulative optical depth data collected from the Cloud Physics LiDAR instrument flown aboard the NASA ER-2 high-altitude aircraft during the GOES-R Post Launch Test (PLT) field campaign. The GOES-R PLT field campaign supported post-launch L1B and L2+ product validation of the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) and the Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM). The CPL instrument is a multi-wavelength backscatter LiDAR that provides multi-wavelength measurements of cirrus clouds and aerosols with high temporal and spatial resolution. Data files are available from April 13, 2017 through May 14, 2017 in HDF-5 format with layer information in ASCII text files. Browse imagery files in GIF format are also available.
