The GOES-R Algorithm Working Group 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 has relied on numerous GOES-R instrument proxy data for its algorithm development and validation activities during the pre-launch phase of the GOES-R program. The pre-launch 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 continuing Level-2 product validation activities that the AWG product application teams have been involved with and the post-launch product validation activities that it will be involved in.
