GOES Advanced Imager: This tutorial utilizes satellite data covering a severe weather outbreak which took place in Kansas and eastern Colorado on 31 May 1996 to demonstrate many of these new capabilities. While it may prove educational to any user, it was created for use by those who have prior experience in the science of meteorology. Imagery from both GOES-8 (located over the equator at 75 deg. W) and GOES-9 (at 135 deg. W) are analyzed using capabilities from the RAMMT Advanced Meteorological Satellite Demonstration and Interpretation System (RAMSDIS), developed by the RAMM Team at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) in Fort Collins, CO.
