Note: A password is required to download FCDR data.  Please contact us at fcdr@atmos.colostate.edu in order to obtain a password.

New: If you are only interested in FCDR data over a specific region or time period we can create custom file lists or ftp input files for automated downloads on Linux computers. While we don't currently have the ability to subset individual orbit files, for regional applications you may wish to only download those orbits with coverage over a selected area. If this is the case, please contact us via email at fcdr@atmos.colostate.edu.
