The GOES-R Algorithm Working Group (AWG) is responsible for the development and validation of Level-2 product algorithms for the future GOES-R Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) and Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) instruments. Each of the AWG product application teams will rely on numerous GOES-R instrument proxy data for algorithm development and validation activities. During the pre-launch phase of the GOES-R program, these validation activities are aimed at characterizing uncertainties of the Level-2 products derived from instrument proxy and/or simulated data. During the post-launch phase of the GOES-R program, the emphasis will be on characterizing the performance of the Level-2 products (derived from real on-orbit instrument data) and indentifying and making necessary product algorithm refinements. This talk will highlight the Level-2 product validation activities that the AWG product application teams are or will be involved in during different phases of the GOES-R program.
