In November 2016, NOAA launched the first in the “R” series of Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites, GOES-16. GOES-16 space weather instruments will nominally reach provisional status near the beginning of 2018. After this milestone has been achieved, NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) will provide archive access to GOES-16 space weather data. This presentation will describe the status of the GOES-16 space weather instruments and the most significant technological improvements of the GOES-R series. These advances include improved in situ measurements of charged particles, higher cadence magnetic field measurements, and enhanced remote sensing of the sun through ultraviolet (UV) imagery and X-ray/UV irradiance. The presentation will also cover available products and access systems for all types of data–raw telemetry (Level 0), science measurements in high resolution (L1b), and higher-level science (L2+) products developed by NCEI scientists.
