Geostationary Satellite Images

Metadata Updated: March 11, 2021

Visible and Infrared satellite imagery taken from radiometer instruments on SMS (ATS) and GOES satellites in geostationary orbit. These satellites produced "full-disk" images, centered over the equator at their longitudinal orbit. Also included are sector images, zoomed images of a portion of the full-disk. Image files are created by scanning hard-copy prints, 10"x10" negatives and microfilm held in the NOAA archives. Period of record for available imagery is May 1974-December 1989.
