NOAA GOES-R Series Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) Level 2 Legacy Vertical Temperature Profile (LVTP)

Metadata Updated: November 2, 2023

The GOES-R Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) Legacy Vertical Temperature Profile product contains a three-dimensional image with pixel values identifying the air temperature at 101 standard pressure levels. The units of measure for the total precipitable water value is kelvin. The product includes three types of data quality information. One describes the overall quality of the data pixels, providing an assessment of the derived stability indices data values for on-earth pixels. The second provides information about the quality of the physical retrieval for on-earth pixels, identifying failure conditions. The third provides information about the quality of the first guess skin temperature for on-earth pixels, identifying temperature threshold failure conditions for on-earth pixels. The Derived Stability Indices product images are produced on the ABI fixed grid at 10 km resolution for Full Disk, CONUS, and Mesoscale coverage regions from GOES East and West. Product data is produced under the following conditions: Clear sky; Geolocated source data to local zenith angles of 80 degrees for both daytime and nighttime conditions.
