GOES-14 Imager again provided special 1-min data in 2014. The dates are May 8-24, and August 14-28 allow special data set collections for GOES-R algorithm developers, research partners, forecasters, and Proving Ground participants. GOES-14 will be located near 105 degrees West.

GOES-14-relevant SRSOR links:
