Abstract
With the launch of GOES-R expected in 2015, research is currently under way to fully understand the characteristics of every channel on its Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI). The ABI will have two infrared (IR) window bands centered near 10.35 and 11.2 μm. Since no broad-band space-borne sensor has a channel near 10.35 μm, radiative transfer model simulations are used to study the clear-sky gaseous absorption properties in this wavelength range. It is shown that water vapor preferentially absorbs radiation at 11.2 μm compared to 10.35 μm, making the 10.35 μm a "cleaner" window IR band.
