Scientists Receive Preliminary Data from GOES-16's Magnetometer

goes r20earth20reflection202012On Dec. 22, scientists received preliminary data from the outboard magnetometer (MAG) instrument aboard NOAA's GOES-16 satellite! GOES-16 was formerly known as GOES-R. MAG observations of Earth's geomagnetic field strength are an important part of NOAA’s space weather mission, with the data used in space weather forecasting, model validation and for developing new space weather models. The GOES-16 MAG samples five times faster than previous GOES magnetometers, which increases the range of space weather phenomena that can be measured.
