This section describes how the WRF-Chem and RAQMS 3D model forecast fields are transformed into ABI radiances and products, and how the simulated products are compared against GOES-13 data.
Profiles of ozone concentration needed by the CRTM are obtained from RAQMS forecasts, which are also used to specify temperature and water vapor above the WRF-Chem model top of 50 hPa.
Other efforts include providing simulated full-disk ABI imagery based on full spectral resolution GFS meteorological forecasts combined with RAQMS 1[degrees] x 1[degrees] global aerosol predictions to the GOES-R Data Operations Support Team (DOST) for ground system validation.
