GOES Sounder Gridded Cloud Products

The GOES Gridded Cloud Product (GGCP) creates a GRIB file showing the effective cloud amount, cloud top temperature, cloud top pressure, cloud height, and the skin temperature. GGCP combines GOES East and West SFOV sounding outputs (McIDAS Area files) to generate global gridded products and converts them into GRIB files.
