NOAA-16 Products

The NOAA-16 AMSU-B moisture channels are getting very noisy as the instrument ages. As a result, the quality of AMSU-B products is not able to meet the operational requirements. A decision has been made at NESDIS to terminate the NOAA-16 AMSU-B products generation and dissemination on February 16, 2012. The products impacted include Rain Rate, Ice Water Path, Snow Cover, Snow Water Equivalent, and Snowfall.
