GOES-R Series ABI Products GRABIPRD (partially restricted L1b and L2+ Data Products) - The Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) is the primary instrument in the GOES-R Series for imaging Earth's weather, oceans, and environment. The ABI views the Earth with 16 different spectral bands compared to five on the previous generation GOES imagers. The ABI includes two visible channels, four near-infrared channels, and ten infrared channels, providing three times more spectral information, four times greater spatial resolution, and more than five times temporal coverage. This ABI data family includes the Level 1b Radiance data, Level 2 Cloud/Moisture Imagery, and several other Level 2 derived products. The archived products are distributed in the netCDF-4 file format with metadata attributes included. Please expand "Details - Metadata, Documentation" section below for more details. Individual product (Datatype) description, documentation, and possible bulk access options are available under the "Product Details" link.
12/7/2018 - GOES-17 ABI Level 1B Radiance data and Cloud and Moisture Imagery products have been officially released to the public, however, the data is not yet considered operational. Please see the official statement from the GOES-R program office posted on the CLASS home page under the News section. The remainder of the GOES-17 ABI Level 2+ products will remain restricted through at least March 2019.
10/30/2018 - The majority of GOES-16 ABI products are now at Provisional Maturity with Full Maturity (highest quality level) reached for the Level 1B Radiance data and Cloud and Moisture Imagery products. All ABI products, as well as, the L1B radiance data, are found under the GRABIPRD data family. For complete details on data maturity start dates and access start dates please see https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/data-access/satellite-data/goes-r-series-satellites.
GOES-17 ABI Level 1B Radiance data and Cloud and Moisture Imagery products are planned to be released before the end of 2018, which is around the time GOES-17 will become the operational GOES-West satellite. The remainder of the ABI Level 2+ products will remain restricted through at least March 2019.
