Baseline Products: Solar EUV Imagery

 caption follows:
GOES-16 SUVI imagery of a large coronal hole on March 27, 2017, in six ultraviolet wavelengths: 171, 195, 284, 304, 94, and 131 angstrom.

The GOES-R Series Solar Ultraviolet Imager (SUVI) Solar EUV Imagery products provide space weather scientists with images of the sun in several different EUV spectral bands. These high-resolution images will reveal details about the structure of active regions, filaments, and solar prominences. Also of interest to space and solar weather scientists are the boundaries of coronal holes and how the entire surface of the Sun behaves during solar flares. Higher-level products made from these imagery products by the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center along with other organizations will provide early warning of potential radiation hazards, such as SEP events, flares, geomagnetic storms and radio blackouts.
