Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies/Space Science and Engineering Center (CIMSS/SSEC) has been involved in Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-R Series (GOES-R) program in many areas. One of the major efforts in CIMSS/SSEC for GOES-R program is to produce and evaluate the Advanced Baseline Imager proxy data. Since pre-produced proxy data is needed to confirm the quality of the future remote sensing observation, the production and validation of these data are requisites to authenticate the usage of a spacecraft meteorological instrument and help other research teams to develop and test product algorithms. WRF model simulations have been used to produce the weather environment and UW/SSEC Fast Solar/IR Radiative Transfer Model has been used to simulate hyperspectral radiance. Analysis over high thin cirrus cloud area will be achieved and discussed in the conference.
