First Calibrated GOES-13 IR Full Disk Image

Updating

The above image shows the first IR image from GOES-13.

Shown above is the first calibrated IR full disk image (band 4, 10.7 µm) from GOES-13 that the SSEC’s Data Center received on July 20th, 2006.

Launched on May 24, GOES-13 is the first of the next series of geostationary weather satellites. These satellites will provide a few improvements over current GOES satellites, including improved navigation and superior measurement of optical radiation.
