GOES Soundings Horizontal Field Archives


These are the new Sounder Derived Product Imagery (SDPI) in single field of view which will eventually replace the current SDPI as well as the colorized product images. The new SDPI is categorized by cloud, fire, moisture, severe weather, and temperature products.

This page contains the frames versions of the 24 hour archive pages
