    GOES Satellite Data - Sounder - The GOES Sounder measures emitted radiation in 18 thermal infrared bands that are sensitive to temperature, moisture, and ozone, and reflected solar radiation in one visible band. The "footprint" or spatial resolution of the Earth sampling is 8 km with 13 bit data transmitted to the GOES receiving facilities.
