SatFC-G: IR Bands, Excluding Water Vapor

SatFC-G: IR Bands, Excluding Water Vapor

This lesson introduces seven of the ten infrared imager bands on the GOES R-U ABI (Advanced Baseline Imager). It examines the spectral characteristics of each band to facilitate a better understanding of band selection and what each band observes, and to shed light on some of the many potential applications.

This lesson is a part of the NWS Satellite Foundation GOES-R Course.
