The Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) will be flown on the next generation of NOAA Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES)-R platform. The sensor will provide enhanced spatial, temporal information for atmospheric moisture, wind and many surface properties. A joint Observation System Simulation Experiments (OSSE) project was started recently to study the impacts of GOES-R ABI measurements on numerical weather prediction.

In this poster, we will present some results of the simulation of GOES-R ABI radiances based on OSSE nature run output and the evaluation against observations. A case study will be performed to analyze ECMWF T511 natural run results. ABI instrument properties and geometry factors are simulated based on current GOES and MSG SEVIRI sensors. The JCSDA Community Radiative Transfer Model (CRTM) is used to simulate ABI radiances with the natural run atmospheric profiles. The simulated radiances are evaluated by comparing with MSG SEVIRI and current GOES observations.
