NESDIS GOES-R QPE Quick Guide
This short reference guide describes the NESDIS GOES-R Quantitative Precipitation Estimation product suite in the context of operations. GOES-R QPE uses both IR and microwave data to retrieve rainfall rates in both the GOES-East and GOES-West domains, and the mechanics of this algorithm are briefly described. The rainrate and accumulation products are shown in a number of operationally-based examples, demonstrating the uses of GOES-R QPE in different regions and environments.
