10.3 µm - "Clean" Longwave IR Window Band - 2 km resolution - Band 13 at 10.3 µm is an infrared window, meaning it is not strongly affected by atmospheric water vapor. This channel is useful for detecting clouds all times of day and night and is particularly useful in retrievals of cloud top height.

GOES-16 Band 13 corresponds approximately to the old GOES-13 IR cloud channel.
