Data access information
  • Near-real time availability of pre-processed IMAGER and SOUNDER data in the GVAR format by the PDR and LRIT links to user stations.
  • Near-real time availability of SXI and SEM (MAG, EPS, HEPAD and XRS) and diagnostic data by MDL. 
  • Near-real-time availability of EMWIN-N information.
  • DCP messages through ground lines.
  • Alert messages of GEOS&R to LUT in real time.
  • Note: No single webpage provides data access details for GOES Level 1 data, the link given here provides access to GOES images in graphical format.

Longitude 105° W

 

Space agency NOAANASA
Status Stand-by
Details on Status
(as available)
  • Initially stored in back-up position at 105°W
  • From 23 Sept to 19 Oct 2012, moved at towards 75°W to back-up GOES-13, stopped at 89.5°W after GOES-13 service recovery
  • From 19 Dec 2012 to 6 Feb 2013, moved back towards 105°W at 0.34 degrees/day.
  • Activated as back-up for GOES-13 for a couple of weeks starting from 23 May 2013, keeping the 105°W position.
  • Currently in nominal configuration as "hot" stand-by.  SXI and XRS are primary instruments for Space weather service.
