Short Name:

GOES-R PLT Cloud Radar System (CRS) V1

The GOES-R PLT Field Campaign Cloud Radar System (CRS) dataset provides high-resolution profiles of reflectivity and Doppler velocity at aircraft nadir along the flight track. The CRS was flown aboard a NASA ER-2 high-altitude aircraft during the GOES-R Post Launch Test (PLT) field campaign. The GOES-R PLT field campaign took place from March 21 to May 17, 2017 in support of post-launch product validation of the Advanced Baseline Image (ABI) and the Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) aboard the GOES-R, now GOES-16, satellite. The CRS data files are available in netCDF-3 format with browse imagery available in PNG format.
