This short lesson details ways in which VIIRS data can complement the better temporal resolution of GOES-R Series data. Specifically, it discussed how Day Night Band imagery can be used to find low-level circulation centers at night, how Moonglint can aid in wind analyses, how near-infrared data can help with river flooding estimates. Fog Detection and Fire Detection are also discussed.
