Data Storage in Google Drive

Final step in the processing chain.

When the data are processed and stored on Google Drive, a notification email is sent to the customer. Folders on the Google drive are generated, which are sorted according to data acquisition date (local time), client, and farm tag.

Aside from the HDF5 raw data file, the following files are generated and uploaded into the folder:

  • Ungridded raw data as CSV file with the following columns:

    • Timestamp, Latitude, Longitude, Polarized TBT_B , Unpolarized TBT_B

  • Gridded, unpolarized brightness temperature as CSV file with the columns:

    • Latitude, Longitude, Unpolarized TBT_B

  • Gridded, polarized brightness temperature as CSV file with the columns:

    • Latitude, Longitude, Polarized TBT_B

  • Gridded data, calibrated in volumetric water content (VWC) as a CSV file with the columns:

    • Latitude, Longitude, VWC

  • Image files in PNG format with the following information:

    • Ungridded raw data (polarized and unpolarized components)

    • Processed, ungridded raw data and the field boundary (polarized and unpolarized components)

    • Processed, gridded data (polarized and unpolarized components)

Each flight will result in multiple files being generated and shared with the user:
