GOES-East Downward Longwave IrradianceOperational Near real time product
Estimation of the downward longwave irradiance reaching the Earth surface derived from the data of the imager on board the geostationary satellite GOES. Algorithm is a bulk parametrization that uses NWP model outputs to calculate a clear sky Downward Longwave Irradiance (DLI), corrected according to satellite derived cloud information.
The hourly product is interpolated at rounded UT hours, by a pixel dependant temporal interpolation between two consecutive satellite images.
The value in the daily product is the integration of all the hourly values in the UT day.
The product is remapped onto a 0.05° regular grid and expressed in W/m2.
