Geostationary Surface and Insolation Products (GSIP), Version 3

GSIP L2

The Geostationary Surface and Insolation Products (GSIP) Version 3 contains upwelling and downwelling shortwave (0.2-4.0 um) and visible (0.4-0.7 um) radiative fluxes at the top of the atmosphere and at the surface, cloud fraction and skin temperature. In addition to these primary products, cloud phase, visible cloud optical depth, outgoing longwave radiation, as well as byproducts (visible aerosol optical depth, composite clear, clear and cloudy reflectances) and ancillary data (total column amounts of water vapor and ozone) are also included. The products are estimated from the radiance measurements of the GOES East and West satellites for the extended northern hemispheres every hour and for the full disk every three hours at a spatial resolution of 4 km. Also used full disk data from EUMETSAT METEOSAT-10 (MSG-3) with resolution 3 km and from JAXA MTSAT-1/2 with resolution 4 km.

Processing Steps
  • 2015-04-22T00:00:00 - NOAA created the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) by merging NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC), and National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC), including the National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC), per the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, Public Law 113-235. NCEI launched publicly on April 22, 2015.
