Geostationary Satellite Data. GOES supplemental operations ended on March 2, The distribution of GOES satellite products has been discontinued.   ATM Weather and Climate of Alaska tutorial on interpreting weather maps and satellite images.

Weather satellite pictures, or more correctly, satellite images, have been available to the public for more than 25 years. These images show cloud distributions over a large area, taken from a top-view perspective. When a sequence of these images is placed together in a loop, the motions of the clouds become apparent. (These exercises will not cover water vapor images.) Weather satellites record the "brightness" or intensity of the visible and IR radiation coming from different parts of the earth or atmosphere. Black-and-white satellite images such as the examples shown above display different intensities of radiation in different shades of gray.

Weather Forecasting Using Surface Chart • Given that we know the weather associated with common features on a surface weather chart, for example: – cold front - narrow band of showers – NE of warm front - light/moderate wide spread precip. – warm sector - hot, humid – etc. • if we can predict the movement of these feature based on itsFile Size: 1MB.

The Landsat mission gave us extraordinary new kinds of views of our own planet.

Book Description The aim of this manual is to present the meteorology student and operational forecaster with the current techniques for interpreting satellite and radar images of weather systems in mid-latitudes.

The focus of the book is the large number of illustrations which match images with conceptual models and weather charts.5/5(1).

COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

This chapter introduces the main principles and aspects of the interpretation of satellite infrared measurements in the water vapor (WV) absorption band. Radiation model simulations are presented for showing the information content of μm and μm satellite imagery in the.

Interpretation of weather satellite images. visible. Visible images represent the amount of sunlight being reflected back into space by the clouds or by the Earth surface.

Cloud free land and water will typically be dark while clouds and snow appear bright. Thicker clouds have a higher reflectivity and appear brighter than thinner clouds.

Eric D. Conway and the Maryland Space Grant Consortium present a fascinating introduction to the interpretation of satellite imagery, a technology of increasing importance for a wide variety of scientific applications. Prepared in association with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), this extensively illustrated text and accompanying CD-ROM offer a thorough overview of 5/5(1).

Weather Analysis and Forecasting is a practical guide to using potential vorticity fields and water vapor imagery from satellites to elucidate complex weather patterns and train meteorologists to improve operational forecasting.

In particular, Weather satellite picture interpretation book details the use of the close relationship between satellite imagery and the potential vorticity fields in the upper troposphere and lower Edition: 1.

It shows how to interpret water vapor patterns in terms of dynamical processes in the atmosphere and their relation to diagnostics available from weather prediction models. The book explores topics including: a dynamical view of synoptic development; the interpretation problem of satellite water vapor imagery; practical use of water vapor imagery and dynamical fields; significant water vapor imagery features associated with synoptic dynamical structures; and use of water.

It assumes that students have already been introduced generally to weather satellites and weather satellite images, and in more detail to basic concepts about solar and terrestrial radiation and the basic laws of radiation. Almost any typical introductory, college-level textbook on meteorology could provide the necessary background.
