1-Minute GOES Imagery over Colorado Severe Storms

On 6 June 2012, GOES-15 SRSO was called, meaning intermittent 1-minute scans would be collected over a mesoscale sector centered in eastern Colorado.  The Storm Prediction Center had a slight risk of severe storms over the region, and by late … Continue reading

Proving Ground: GOES-R ABI color imagery

J. Braun, Louie Grasso and Don Hillger When GOES-R becomes operational, one new capability that no other GOES satellite has had to date is the ability to produce geostationary color imagery. As a result, satellite detection of pollution and/or thin … Continue reading

Thunderstorm features through channel differencing in the GOES-R Proving Ground

J. Braun GOES-R ABI will have several channels in the window region from which channel difference products can be produced. Four channels, 8.5, 10.35, 11.2, and 12.3 µm can be differenced to produce a total of six difference images. In … Continue reading
