The Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) is the primary instrument on the GOES-R Series spacecraft for imaging Earth’s weather, oceans, and environment. ABI views Earth with 16 different spectral bands (compared to five on previous GOES), including two visible channels, four near-infrared channels, and ten infrared channels. ABI provides three times more spectral information, four times the spatial resolution, and more than five times faster coverage than the previous GOES imager.
This section mirrors the Flickr gallery above but contains links to only HIGH RESOLUTION LOCAL (to our server as opposed to Flickr) images. It functions as a 'one click' quick access to the highest resolution version of each image as well as back up in the event Flickr is down.
