Files are available from ftp.cloudsat.cira.colostate.edu using your website credentials to log in. If you don't already have an account, create one under the Login link in the main menu above. Data files on the FTP server are organized in the following structure:
Product.version (e.g. 2B-FLXHR.P2_R04) / Year (e.g. 2008) / Day of year (e.g. 007)
You may use a wget command or a script to simplify access. A typical wget command looks like the following:
wget -nd -N -r --user=[your username] --ask-password ftp://ftp.cloudsat.cira.colostate.edu/2B-GEOPROF.P1_R05/2015/001
Removing the day directory will result in all 2B-GEOPROF.P1_R05 files for the year to be downloaded.
Removing the year directory will retrieve all the 2B-GEOPROF.P1_R05 files for the mission.
-nd will cause wget to put all the files into one directory on your computer without the year/day heirarchy and
-N will prevent files from being downloaded again when the command is rerun.
You can also find a Perl script for downloading data on our Software Tools page under the Resources tab above.
