GOES-14 Full Disk 6.5 µm water vapor images

On Day 2 (01 December 2009) of the GOES-14 NOAA Science Test, the satellite was placed into a continuous “Full Disk” scan mode, providing images of the entire hemisphere at 30 minute intervals — full disk images of the GOES-14 6.5 µm “water vapor channel” are shown above. While the current GOES operational scan schedule provides 1 full disk image every 3 hours, the ABI instrument on the upcoming GOES-R satellite will have the ability to provide full disk images every 5 minutes!
