NOAA GOES-R Series Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) Level 2 Cloud and Moisture Imagery Products (CMIP)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

The Cloud and Moisture Imagery product contains one or more Earth-view images with pixel values identifying brightness values that are scaled to support visual analysis. The product includes data quality information that provides an assessment of the cloud and moisture imagery data values for on-earth pixels. Cloud and Moisture Imagery product files are generated for each of the sixteen Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) reflective bands (channels 1 - 6 with approximate central wavelengths 0.47, 0.64, 0.865, 1.378, 1.61, 2.25 microns respectively) and emissive bands (channels 7 - 16 with approximate central wavelengths 3.9, 6.185, 6.95, 7.34, 8.5, 9.61, 10.35, 11.2, 12.3, 13.3 microns respectively). In addition, there is a multiband product file where the imagery at all bands is included. The imagery value for the reflective bands, ABI bands 1 through 6, is a dimensionless reflectance factor quantity that is normalized by the solar zenith angle. These bands support the characterization of clouds, vegetation, snow/ice, and aerosols. The imagery value for the emissive bands, ABI bands 7 through 16, is the brightness temperature at the Top-Of-Atmosphere (TOA) in Kelvin. These bands supports the characterization of the surface, clouds, water vapor, ozone, volcanic ash and dust based on emissive properties.
