CALIPSO-GOCCP Data download (link unavailable!)

by imogenwadlow » Tue Aug 04, 2020 6:06 pm America/New_York

I'm trying to access the CALIPSO-GOCCP (GCM Oriented Cloud Calipso Product) as a netcdf file for Low Cloud Fraction. The site: https://climatedataguide.ucar.edu/climate-data/calipso directs you to: https://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov/project/ca ... ipso_table but this site is down and I cannot find it on the new https://asdc.larc.nasa.gov/ site that eosweb redirects to. Does anyone know where I can find the new home of this data?

I believe ASDC was incorrectly listed as having this information. While waiting for a definitive answer, I did find the following article from the American Meteorological Society to be very informative: https://journals.ametsoc.org/jcli/artic ... IPSO-GOCCP

It indicates in the footnote the data is available from a french climserv at Polytechnique http: //climserv.ipsl.polytechnique.fr/ which is a bad link.

Upon further research, it appears you will need login or special permissions to access this data:
