NOAA GOES-R Series Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) Level 2 Cloud Top Pressure (CTP)

The Cloud Top Pressure product contains an image with pixel values identifying the atmospheric pressure at the top of a cloud layer. The product is generated in combination with the Cloud Top Height and Cloud Top Temperature products by the same algorithm. The product includes data quality information that provides an assessment of the cloud top height data values for on-earth pixels. The units of measure for the cloud top pressure value is hectopascals. The Cloud Top Pressure product image is produced on the ABI fixed grid (at 10 km for Full Disk and CONUS coverage regions) under the following conditions: Cloudy; Geolocated source data to local zenith angles of 70 degrees for both daytime and nighttime conditions.
