cloudsatmatlab

This repository contains code that allows robust reading of CloudSat files.

To install, simply move the +cloudsat folder into your main MATLAB directory, ensuring the plus sign is retained in the directory name.

Functions available:

  • Open the file: cloudsat.io('open',FILENAMEHERE,ALGORITHMNAMEHERE);
  • Close the file: cloudsat.io('close');
  • Read a product: data = cloudsat.io('read',PRODUCTNAMEHERE);
  • Convert a product: data = cloudsat.convert(data,PRODUCTNAMEHERE);
  • If you wish to know the missing value quantity after conversion, use this product conversion function call instead: [data, missingvalue] = cloudsat.convert(data,PRODUCTNAMEHERE);

At the moment, the algorithm and product name are case sensitive and must match the case of the fields on the DPC site. For example, 2B-GEOPROF and Radar_Reflectivity are the proper cases.

Versions successfully tested on include R2011b, R2014a, and R2014b. Please feel free to contact me with other compatibilities at ethan-nelson@users.noreply.github.com or directly on GitHub.
