GOES-16 ABI L3C SST (ABI G16-STAR-L3C-v2.70), GOES EAST Position, 0.02°, Hourly, 2017-present

Metadata Updated: June 10, 2023

Sea surface temperature retrievals produced by NOAA/NESDIS/STAR from the ABI sensor on the GOES-16 satellite. L2P algorithm V2.70; L3U algorithm V4.1.5. SSTs are a weighted average of the SSTs of contributing pixels. WARNING: some applications are unable to properly handle signed byte values. If byte values > 127 are encountered, subtract 256 from this reported value. Please acknowledge the use of these data with the following statement: These data were provided by Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
