GOES-13 Visible Imagery

  Robert Rabin1,2



NOTE: GOES-13 is operating on a similar schedule as GOES-12 during August-October 2008.

This satellite provides advantages in the following areas:

    1) maintains coverage during eclipse periods,

    2) more stable navigation than previous GOES satellites.

    3) brighter visible data and improved Signal to Noise Ratio

    GOES-13 data is experimental and is being made available for assessment from NOAA/NESDIS. The data shown here is obatined from a receiving station at SSEC.
