- Data is available for 16 different channels or bands. A blue box appears for every file that is available. The number on the box represents the minute the scan started. Full disk scans are available every 15 minutes, CONUS scans are available every 5 minutes, and mesoscale scans are available every minute.
- Click the desired file and the download will begin.
Files are downloaded in NetCDF format.
