Short summary
The current Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) 8–15 series has been operational since 1994. Gridded Satellite (GridSat) data provide GOES data in a modern format to simplify access: data have been temporally resampled to regular time intervals, spatially remapped to ~ 4 km spacing, and calibrated. GridSat-CONUS and GridSat-GOES provide data at 15 min and 1 h intervals, respectively. The result is a smaller and easier-to-use dataset.
