GOES-12 Science Test Report

This page contains the final draft of the GOES-12 Science Test Report, containing the combined results of analysis conducted at several branches of the NESDIS. This report was published in September 2003 as NOAA Technical Report NESDIS 115 "Imager and Sounder Radiance and Product Validations for the GOES-12 Science Test".
