Current Satellite Data: Goes-East & College of Dupage

Important GOES-East Channel Definition & Fire Weather Applications:
Visible: Infrared (IR): Water Vapor:
  • Band 1: Blue Band - Tuned to detect smoke and aerosols. Cloud characteristics will be masked somewhat.
  • Band 2: Red Band  - The classic visible satellite channel.
  • Band 3: Veggie (Near IR) - Burn scar detection.
  • Band 7: (Shortwave IR) - Sensitive to extreme temperatures and is useful in hot spot detection (if there are not cloud or canopy obstructions).
  • Band 13: Clean Longwave IR - Traditional infrared satellite data useful in determining cloud-top temperatures.
  • Band 8: Upper-Level Water Vapor - Tracking the upper-level jet stream & moisture.
  • Band 9: Mid-Level Water Vapor - Tracking  mid and upper-level moisture and jet streaks.
  • Band 10: Low-Level Water Vapor - Tracking low-level moisture
