NOAA GOES-R Series Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) Level 2 Total Precipitable Water (TPW)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

The Total Precipitable Water product contains an image with pixel values identifying the integrated column water vapor amount from the surface to a height corresponding to an atmospheric pressure of 300 hPa. The units of measure for the total precipitable water value is millimeters. 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. 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.
