  15. GOES East ABI ConUS B01 "Blue" Visible
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND01
    The 0.47 µm, or “Blue” visible band, is one of two visible bands on the ABI, and provides data for monitoring aerosols. Included on NASA’s MODIS and Suomi NPP VIIRS instruments, this band provides well-established benefits. The geostationary ABI 0.47 µm band will provide nearly continuous daytime observations of dust, haze, smoke and clouds. The 0.47 µm band is more sensitive to aerosols / dust / smoke because it samples a part of the electromagnetic spectrum where clear-sky atmospheric scattering is important
  16. GOES East ABI ConUS B02 Hi-Res "Red" Visible
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND02
    The ‘Red’ Visible band – 0.64 µm – has the finest spatial resolution (0.5 km at the subsatellite point) of all ABI bands. Thus it is ideal to identify small-scale features such as river fogs and fog/clear air boundaries, or overshooting tops or cumulus clouds. It has also been used to document daytime snow and ice cover, diagnose low-level cloud-drift winds, assist with detection of volcanic ash and analysis of hurricanes and winter storms. The ‘Red’ Visible band is also essential for creation of “true color” imagery.
  17. GOES East ABI ConUS B03 "Veggie"
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND03
    The 0.86 μm band (a reflective band) detects daytime clouds, fog, and aerosols and is used to compute the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI). Its nickname is the “veggie” or “vegetation” band. The 0.86 μm band can detect burn scars and thereby show land characteristics to determine fire and run-off potential. Vegetated land, in general, shows up brighter in this band than in visible bands. Landwater contrast is also large in this band.
  18. GOES East ABI ConUS B04 Cirrus
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND04
    The Cirrus Band (1.37 µm) is unique among the reflective bands on the ABI in that it occupies a region of very strong absorption by water vapor in the electromagnetic spectrum. It will detect very thin cirrus clouds during the day.
  19. GOES East ABI ConUS B05 Snow/Ice
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND05
    The Snow/Ice band takes advantage of the difference between the refraction components of water and ice at 1.61 µm. Liquid water clouds are bright in this channel; ice clouds are darker because ice absorbs (rather than reflects) radiation at 1.61 µm. Thus you can infer cloud phase. Fires can also be detected at night using this band.
  20. GOES East ABI ConUS B06 Cloud Particle Size
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND06
    The 2.24 μm band, in conjunction with other bands, enables cloud particle size estimation. Cloud particle size changes can indicate cloud development. The 2.24 μm band is also used with other bands to estimate aerosol particle size (by characterizing the aerosol-free background over land), to create cloud masking and to detect hot spots.
  21. GOES East ABI ConUS B07 "Fire"
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND07
    The 3.9 μm band can be used to identify fog and low clouds at night, identify fire hot spots, detect volcanic ash, estimate sea-surface temperatures, and discriminate between ice crystal sizes during the day. Low-level atmospheric vector winds can be estimated with this band, and the band can be used to study urban heat islands. The 3.9 μm is unique among ABI bands because it senses both emitted terrestrial radiation as well as significant reflected solar radiation during the day.
  22. GOES East ABI ConUS B07 "Fire" enhanced
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND07-FIRE
    The 3.9 μm band can be used to identify fog and low clouds at night, identify fire hot spots, detect volcanic ash, estimate sea-surface temperatures, and discriminate between ice crystal sizes during the day.

  24. GOES East ABI ConUS B08 Upper-level Water Vapor
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND08
    The 6.2 µm “Upper-level water vapor” band is one of three water vapor bands on the ABI, and is used for tracking upper-tropospheric winds, identifying jet streams, forecasting hurricane track and mid-latitude storm motion, monitoring severe weather potential, estimating upper/ mid-level moisture (for legacy vertical moisture profiles) and identifying regions where the potential for turbulence exists. Further, it can be used to validate numerical model initialization and warming/cooling with time can reveal vertical motions at mid- and upper levels.
  25. GOES East ABI ConUS B08 Upper-level Water Vapor enhanced
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND08-VAPR

    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND09
    The 6.9 µm “Mid-level water vapor” band is one of three water vapor bands on the ABI, and is used for tracking middle-tropospheric winds, identifying jet streams, forecasting hurricane track and mid-latitude storm motion, monitoring severe weather potential, estimating mid-level moisture (for legacy vertical moisture profiles) and identifying regions where turbulence might exist.

  28. GOES East ABI ConUS B10 Lower-level Water Vapor
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND10
    The 7.3 µm “Lower-level water vapor” band is one of three water vapor bands on the ABI. It typically senses farthest down into the midtroposphere in cloud-free regions, to around 500-750 hPa. It is used to track lowertropospheric winds, identify jet streaks, monitor severe weather potential, estimate lower-level moisture (for legacy vertical moisture profiles), identify regions where the potential for turbulence exists, highlight volcanic plumes that are rich in sulphur dioxide (SO2) and track LakeEffect snow bands.
  29. GOES East ABI ConUS B10 Lower-level Water Vapor enhanced

  30. GOES East ABI ConUS B11 Cloud Phase
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND11
    The infrared 8.5 μm band is a window channel; there is little atmospheric absorption of energy in clear skies at this wavelength (unless SO2 from a volcanic eruption is present). However, knowledge of emissivity is important in the interpretation of this Band: Differences in surface emissivity at 8.5 μm occur over different soil types, affecting the perceived brightness temperature. Water droplets also have different emissivity properties for 8.5 μm radiation compared to other wavelengths. The 8.5 μm band was not available on either the Legacy GOES Imager or GOES Sounder.
  31. GOES East ABI ConUS B12 Ozone
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND12
    The 9.6 μm band gives information both day and night about the dynamics of the atmosphere near the tropopause. This band shows cooler temperatures than the clean window band because both ozone and water vapor absorb 9.6 μm atmospheric energy. The cooling effect is especially apparent at large zenith angles. This band alone cannot diagnose total column ozone: product generation using other bands will be necessary for that.
  32. GOES East ABI ConUS B13 "Clean" Infrared
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND13
    The 10.3 μm “clean” infrared window band is less sensitive than other infrared window bands to water vapor absorption, and therefore improves atmospheric moisture corrections, aids in cloud and other atmospheric feature identification/classification, estimation of cloudtop brightness temperature and cloud particle size, and surface property characterization in derived products.
  33. GOES East ABI ConUS B13 "Clean" Infrared enhanced
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND13-GRAD
    The 10.3 μm “clean” infrared window band is less sensitive than other infrared window bands to water vapor absorption, and therefore improves atmospheric moisture corrections, aids in cloud and other atmospheric feature identification/classification, estimation of cloudtop brightness temperature and cloud particle size, and surface property characterization in derived products.
  34. GOES East ABI ConUS B14 Infrared
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND14
    The infrared 11.2 μm band is a window channel; however, there is absorption of energy by water vapor at this wavelength. Brightness Temperatures (BTs) are affected by this absorption, and 11.2 μm BTs will be cooler than clean window (10.3 μm) BTs – by an amount that is a function of the amount of moisture in the atmosphere. This band has similarities to the legacy infrared channel at 10.7 μm.
  35. GOES East ABI ConUS B15 "Dirty" Infrared
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND15
    Absorption and re-emission of water vapor, particularly in the lower troposphere, slightly cools most non-cloud brightness temperatures (BTs) in the 12.3 μm band compared to the other infrared window channels: the more water vapor, the greater the BT difference. The 12.3 μm band and the 10.3 μm are used to compute the ‘split window difference’. The 10.3 μm “Clean Window” channel is a better choice than the “Dirty Window” (12.3 μm) for the monitoring of simple atmospheric phenomena.
  36. GOES East ABI ConUS B16 Carbon Dioxide
    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-BAND16
    Products derived using the infrared 13.3 μm “Carbon Dioxide” band can be used to delineate the tropopause, to estimate cloudtop heights, to discern the level of Derived Motion Winds, to supplement Automated Surface Observing System (ASOS) sky observations and to identify Volcanic Ash. The 13.3 μm band is vital for Baseline Products; that is demonstrated by its presence on heritage GOES Imagers and Sounders. Despite its importance in products, the CO2 channel is typically not used for visual interpretation of weather events.
  37. GOES East ABI ConUS Sandwich

    ID: G16-ABI-CONUS-TC

The CIMSS Natural True Color product, approximates the green by combining Blue (0.47 µm), Red (0.64 µm) and ‘Veggie’ (0.86 µm) bands. The use of the Veggie band is important because it mimics the enhanced reflectivity present in the Green Band.

    ID: G16-ABI-MESO1-BAND11
    The infrared 8.5 μm band is a window channel; there is little atmospheric absorption of energy in clear skies at this wavelength (unless SO2 from a volcanic eruption is present). However, knowledge of emissivity is important in the interpretation of this Band: Differences in surface emissivity at 8.5 μm occur over different soil types, affecting the perceived brightness temperature. Water droplets also have different emissivity properties for 8.5 μm radiation compared to other wavelengths. The 8.5 μm band was not available on either the Legacy GOES Imager or GOES Sounder.

    ID: G16-ABI-MESO1-BAND12
    The 9.6 μm band gives information both day and night about the dynamics of the atmosphere near the tropopause. This band shows cooler temperatures than the clean window band because both ozone and water vapor absorb 9.6 μm atmospheric energy. The cooling effect is especially apparent at large zenith angles. This band alone cannot diagnose total column ozone: product generation using other bands will be necessary for that.

    The infrared 11.2 μm band is a window channel; however, there is absorption of energy by water vapor at this wavelength. Brightness Temperatures (BTs) are affected by this absorption, and 11.2 μm BTs will be cooler than clean window (10.3 μm) BTs – by an amount that is a function of the amount of moisture in the atmosphere. This band has similarities to the legacy infrared channel at 10.7 μm.
  82. GOES East ABI Meso1 B15 "Dirty" Infrared

    Absorption and re-emission of water vapor, particularly in the lower troposphere, slightly cools most non-cloud brightness temperatures (BTs) in the 12.3 μm band compared to the other infrared window channels: the more water vapor, the greater the BT difference. The 12.3 μm band and the 10.3 μm are used to compute the ‘split window difference’. The 10.3 μm “Clean Window” channel is a better choice than the “Dirty Window” (12.3 μm) for the monitoring of simple atmospheric phenomena.

Clouds and the atmosphere absorb a much smaller amount. The earth’s surface, clouds, and the atmosphere then re-emit part of this absorbed solar energy as heat. The infrared channel senses this re-emitted radiation. A major advantage of the IR channel is that it can sense energy at night, so this imagery is available 24 hours a day.

    he Snow/Ice band takes advantage of the difference between the refraction components of water and ice at 1.61 µm. Liquid water clouds are bright in this channel; ice clouds are darker because ice absorbs (rather than reflects) radiation at 1.61 µm. Thus you can infer cloud phase. Fires can also be detected at night using this band.
  196. GOES West ABI Meso2 B06
    ID: G17-ABI-MESO2-BAND06
    The 2.24 μm band, in conjunction with other bands, enables cloud particle size estimation. Cloud particle size changes can indicate cloud development. The 2.24 μm band is also used with other bands to estimate aerosol particle size (by characterizing the aerosol-free background over land), to create cloud masking and to detect hot spots.
  197. GOES West ABI Meso2 B07
    ID: G17-ABI-MESO2-BAND07
    The 3.9 μm band can be used to identify fog and low clouds at night, identify fire hot spots, detect volcanic ash, estimate sea-surface temperatures, and discriminate between ice crystal sizes during the day. Low-level atmospheric vector winds can be estimated with this band, and the band can be used to study urban heat islands. The 3.9 μm is unique among ABI bands because it senses both emitted terrestrial radiation as well as significant reflected solar radiation during the day.

  199. GOES West ABI Meso2 B08
    ID: G17-ABI-MESO2-BAND08
    The 6.2 µm “Upper-level water vapor” band is one of three water vapor bands on the ABI, and is used for tracking upper-tropospheric winds, identifying jet streams, forecasting hurricane track and mid-latitude storm motion, monitoring
  200. GOES West ABI Meso2 B08 VAPR
    ID: G17-ABI-MESO2-BAND08-VAPR

  201. GOES West ABI Meso2 B09
    ID: G17-ABI-MESO2-BAND09
    The 6.9 µm “Mid-level water vapor” band is one of three water vapor bands on the ABI, and is used for tracking middle-tropospheric winds, identifying jet streams, forecasting hurricane track and mid-latitude storm motion, monitoring severe weather potential, estimating mid-level moisture (for legacy vertical moisture profiles) and identifying regions where turbulence might exist. Surface features are usually not apparent in this band. Brightness Temperatures show cooling because of absorption of energy at 6.9 µm by water vapor.
  202. GOES West ABI Meso2 B09 VAPR

  203. GOES West ABI Meso2 B10
    ID: G17-ABI-MESO2-BAND10
    The 7.3 µm “Lower-level water vapor” band is one of three water vapor bands on the ABI. It typically senses farthest down into the midtroposphere in cloud-free regions, to around 500-750 hPa. It is used to track lowertropospheric winds, identify jet streaks, monitor severe weather potential, estimate lower-level moisture (for legacy vertical moisture profiles), identify regions where the potential for turbulence exists, highlight volcanic plumes that are rich in sulphur dioxide (SO2) and track LakeEffect snow bands.

  205. GOES West ABI Meso2 B11
    ID: G17-ABI-MESO2-BAND11
    he infrared 8.5 μm band is a window channel; there is little atmospheric absorption of energy in clear skies at this wavelength (unless SO2 from a volcanic eruption is present). However, knowledge of emissivity is important in the interpretation of this Band: Differences in surface emissivity at 8.5 μm occur over different soil types, affecting the perceived brightness temperature. Water droplets also have different emissivity properties for 8.5 μm radiation compared to other wavelengths. The 8.5 μm band was not available on either the Legacy GOES Imager or GOES Sounder.
  206. GOES West ABI Meso2 B12
    ID: G17-ABI-MESO2-BAND12
    The 9.6 μm band gives information both day and night about the dynamics of the atmosphere near the tropopause. This band shows cooler temperatures than the clean window band because both ozone and water vapor absorb 9.6 μm atmospheric energy. The cooling effect is especially apparent at large zenith angles. This band alone cannot diagnose total column ozone: product generation using other bands will be necessary for that.
  207. GOES West ABI Meso2 B13
    ID: G17-ABI-MESO2-BAND13
    The 10.3 μm “clean” infrared window band is less sensitive than other infrared window bands to water vapor absorption, and therefore improves atmospheric moisture corrections, aids in cloud and other atmospheric feature identification/classification, estimation of cloudtop brightness temperature and cloud particle size, and surface property characterization in derived products.

  210. GOES West ABI Meso2 B14
    ID: G17-ABI-MESO2-BAND14
    The infrared 11.2 μm band is a window channel; however, there is absorption of energy by water vapor at this wavelength. Brightness Temperatures (BTs) are affected by this absorption, and 11.2 μm BTs will be cooler than clean window (10.3 μm) BTs – by an amount that is a function of the amount of moisture in the atmosphere. This band has similarities to the legacy infrared channel at 10.7 μm.
  211. GOES West ABI Meso2 B15
    ID: G17-ABI-MESO2-BAND15
    Absorption and re-emission of water vapor, particularly in the lower troposphere, slightly cools most non-cloud brightness temperatures (BTs) in the 12.3 μm band compared to the other infrared window channels: the more water vapor, the greater the BT difference. The 12.3 μm band and the 10.3 μm are used to compute the ‘split window difference’. The 10.3 μm “Clean Window” channel is a better choice than the “Dirty Window” (12.3 μm) for the monitoring of simple atmospheric phenomena.
  212. GOES West ABI Meso2 B16
    ID: G17-ABI-MESO2-BAND16
    Products derived using the infrared 13.3 μm “Carbon Dioxide” band can be used to delineate the tropopause, to estimate cloudtop heights, to discern the level of Derived Motion Winds, to supplement Automated Surface Observing System (ASOS) sky observations and to identify Volcanic Ash. The 13.3 μm band is vital for Baseline Products; that is demonstrated by its presence on heritage GOES Imagers and Sounders. Despite its importance in products, the CO2 channel is typically not used for visual interpretation of weather events.

  214. Hydro Estimator Rainfall
    ID: NESDIS-GHE-HourlyRainfall
    The HE algorithm uses infrared (IR) brightness temperatures to identify regions of rainfall and retrieve rainfall rate, while using National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Global Forecast System (GFS) model fields to account for the effects of moisture availability, evaporation, orographic modulation, and thermodynamic profile effects. Estimates of rainfall from satellites can provide critical rainfall information in regions where data from gauges or radar are unavailable or unreliable, such as over oceans or sparsely populated regions.
