Bill Line (STAR) published a blog post titled “Colorado Cold Front”. The post provides strategies for leveraging satellite imagery in AWIPS to visualize fronts. See Figure below. The link to the post can be found here. (POC: B. Line, CoRP/RAMMB, email@example.com) Funding: PDRA
Figure: GOES-East Geocolor+IR blended imagery (from AWIPS) captures clouds, aerosols, and the position of an W-E oriented cold front across eastern Colorado.
The Regional and Mesoscale Meteorology Branch (RAMMB) of NOAA/NESDIS conducts research on the use of satellite data to improve analysis, forecasts and warnings for regional and mesoscale meteorological events. RAMMB is co-located with the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO.
