[McIDAS #OXG-395498]: conversion of lac level1b to area format

Very good.

I do not know if SSEC/CIMSS maintains an archive of the CTP products that they 
Even if they did, would they cover the area you are interested in?

I can say with assurity that none of the CIMSS products that are available in
the UNIWISC IDD (Internet Data Distribution) feed are archived by us.

I think you need to use your colleague's algorithm.  Just out of curiosity, how
does that algorithm determine cloud top pressure from a single band?
