Simulation datasets are being produced in preparation for future hyperspectral geostationary instruments resembling GIFTS, such as a proposed HES imaging interferometer on GOES-R. These datasets are being used for testing of algorithms and data processing software. Use of the WRF model over extremely large spatial domains provides self-consistent data of representative size and shape. Atmospheric and cloud profiles for a potential geostationary viewing area over a 24-hour period are generated. These profiles are then used to calculate what the instrument in orbit will see and the interferograms that will be sent to the surface stations.
