NOAA GOES-R Series Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) Level 2 Derived Motion Winds (DMW)

The Derived Motion Winds product contains a list of wind vectors identifying their location, wind speed, wind direction, air pressure and temperature, and local zenith angle. The product includes data quality information for each wind vector. The product name includes the word "derived" because the wind vectors are derived by tracking environmental features, specifically clouds and clear sky water vapor over multiple ABI observations. The type of feature tracked varies as a function of the ABI band. Derived Motion Wind product files are generated for the ABI reflective and emissive band that are used to track features. The units of measure for the wind vector quantities are meters per second for wind speed; degrees for wind direction; hectopascals for wind pressure; kelvin for air temperature. Product data is produced for geolocated source data to local zenith angles of 90 degrees. The Derived Motion Winds product is produced using ABI Full Disk, CONUS, and Mesoscale coverage region observations.
