Learning Objective: To introduce the user to the capabilities of the next generation of satellites starting with GOES-R. Background: In the mid 1990’s there were geostationary satellites with great capabilities that were not being fully utilized by the forecaster. We don’t want history to repeat itself. GOES-R will have increased capabilities over the current GOES series. This module takes a look at “Why?”, “When?”, “What?”, and “How?” and provides examples and information links.
Note: Be sure to have your speakers on and the volume loud enough to hear the presentation.
