The cloud and moisture imagery product will utilize all 16 spectral bands of the GOES-R ABI to monitor the Earth, atmosphere, and ocean system. The measured reflectance (radiance) within the visible (infrared) bands are converted into brightness values (BVs) and brightness temperatures (BTs), respectively. The BVs and BTs are used to generate an array of products aiding forecasters in monitoring and predicting all kinds of hazards: weather, oceanographic, and climate-related phenomena.
