This module is part of the satellite foundational course for GOES-R (SatFC-G). This particular module covers the 3 water vapor bands (6.2, 7.0 and 7.3 microns) that will be on the GOES-R ABI. Learning objectives include:
1. Brief review of water vapor imagery background information and interpretation.
2. Learn the differences between current water vapor channels on the GOES imager and sounder instruments to that on the GOES-R ABI instrument.
3. Understand the fundamentals of the GOES-R water vapor channels to provide a foundation for additional training on operational applications.
