GOES-WEST IMAGER DATA
Server/group/dataset information for GOES-West can be found at the
end of this file. This includes information for GOES-West
Full disk images are sent every 3 hours, beginning at 0000 UTC,
regardless of what schedule the spacecraft is in.
When the spacecraft is in a routine schedule, CONUS, SUB-CONUS, Northern
Hemisphere (NH) & Southern Hemisphere (SH) images are sent as
CONUS hh15 & hh45
SUB-CONUS hh10 & hh40
NH hh00 & hh30
SH hh22 & hh52
For various reasons (such as, but not limited to, severe
weather or for space shuttle support), the spacecraft may go
into either a Rapid Scan Operations (RSO) schedule or a
Super Rapid Scan Operations (SRSO) schedule.
Images sent during the RSO schedule can be found in the same
datasets as when the spacecraft is in the routine schedule.
During the SRSO schedule, CONUS, SUB-CONUS, NH and FD images can also
be found in the same datasets as during the routine schedule,
while the 1-minutes images will be in the SRSO datasets.
GOES-WEST SOUNDER DATA
GOES-West sounder image start times are hh02 & hh24.
