ready International Consortium for Atmospheric Research on Transport and Transformation Format

Abbreviation: ICARTT Format

General Information
The International Consortium for Atmospheric Research on Transport and Transformation (ICARTT) file format is a text-based, self-describing, and relatively simple-to-use file structure. This ASCIIfile format was built on two well-established airborne data formats: NASA Ames and GTE. Like its predecessors, the ICARTT file format is designed for handling airborne insitu measurement data but having limited capability to accommodate data from airborne or ground-based remote sensing (e.g. LIDAR), ground-based measurements, and aspects of satellite data.
