General information on interpretation of atmospheric temperature and moisture soundingsderived from GOES satellite data.

Complete Station List of GOES Soundings


The GOES Temperature and Moisture Soundings Profiles are displayed in Skew-T Log-P diagram format. These diagrams include both the GOES and the first guess (model data). Also included are several derived parameters to the right of each diagram. The GOES thermal gradient winds (derived from the Soundings) are also displayed on the diagrams. A Sounding may not always be available for a given site, if cloud cover exists. Site selection for the profiles has been split up into three regions in the links below: Atlantic and Eastern U.S., Continental U.S. (Mexico and S Canada included), and Pacific and Western U.S.
