Update #1: The GOES-16
ABI was switched back to Mode-3 at 1549Z. The quality of
GOES-16 ABI Full Disk CMI derived products is expected to
improve with this change. With the return to Mode-3, it
was noted that the timeline was off by 5 minutes. The
timeline was corrected at 1645Z.
Topic: Degradation of multiple
GOES-16 ABI Full Disk CMI derived products and their
distribution to PDA.
Product(s) or Data Impacted:
of multiple GOES-16 ABI Full Disk CMI derived products and
their distribution to PDA.
Date/Time of Initial Impact:October 1,
Date/Time of Expected End: TBD
Length of Event:TBD
Details/Specifics of Change: The
following GOES-16 Full Disk products were/are of
degradedquality: Aerosol Optical Depth degraded
starting at 0000Z, Cloud Top Height degradedstarting at
0115Z, Cloud Top Pressure degraded starting at 0115Z,
Cloud Top Temperature degraded starting at 0115Z,
Derived Stability Indicesdegraded starting at 0015Z,
Fire Hot Spot degraded from 0155Z to 0755Z, Fractional
Snow Cover degraded starting at 0945Z, Legacy Vertical
Moisture degraded starting at 0015Z, Legacy Vertical
Temperature degraded starting at 0015Z, Total
Precipitable Water degraded starting at 0015Z,Volcanic
Ash degraded starting at 0000Z. The degradation of
GOES-16 ABI Full Disk CMI derived products, inABI Mode
4, are due to an anomaly. These products were andare
being delivered to PDA.
