C. Slocum provided the ESRL/PSL Hydrometeorology Modeling and Applications Team with GOES-16 visible and infrared imagery over Barbados. The imagery is being used to help with validation work with data collected during the NOAA Atlantic Tradewind Ocean–Atmosphere Mesoscale Interaction Campaign (ATOMIC) field campaign. Specifically, the
Hydrometeorology Modeling and Applications Team is looking at comparisons between ground-based Ka radar at the Barbados Cloud Observatory with observations from the NASA/JAXA Global Precipitation Measurement. (POC: Chris Slocum, Christopher.Slocum@noaa.gov, Funding: PDRA).
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.
