About Band 3

6.2 µm - "Upper-level Water Vapor" Band - 4 km resolution - GOES-15 Band 3 is similar to the GOES-16 ABI imager band 8. It can be used for upper-level tropospheric water vapor tracking, jet stream identification, hurricane track forecasting, mid-latitude storm forecasting, severe weather analysis, upper mid-level moisture estimation (for legacy vertical moisture profiles) and turbulence detection.
