GOES-16 ABI and Landsat 8 Reflectance Values in Land Product Characterization System

Detailed Description

This plot on the Land Product Characterization System (LPCS) displays the red band Top of Atmosphere (TOA) reflectance mean from the NOAA Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) - 16 Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) and Landsat 8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) for the Pseudo-invariant Calibration Site (PICS) Mauritania 2 desert calibration site in Africa.

Since GOES ABI has near-daily acquisitions compared to Landsat 8’s 16-day acquisition cycle, there are many more data points to display on the plot.
