National Labs (Weaver, Zehr)
GOES-8 Satellite imagery was provided to Atlantic Oceanographic and
Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) for a project involving the detection
of wind magnitude and rainfall rate with acoustic sensors deployed below
the ocean surface. A sector of GOES-8 visible and 3.9
um imagery at night has been set up on the Regional and Mesoscale
Meteorology Team Advanced Meteorological Satellite Demonstration and Interpretation
System at Hurricane Research Division to monitor the weather in an area
of the ocean centered on the Bahamas.
Interaction continues with Hurricane Research Division (HRD) at AOML on
use of Tropical RAMSDIS and collaborative research projects. Implemented
new product on Tropical RAMSDIS, which derives Sea Surface Temperatures
using channels 4 and 5 on the GOES-8 imager.
