This module is part of the satellite foundational course for GOES-R (SatFC-G). This particular module describes atmospheric rivers. The primary learning objective is to learn how to make optimal use of GOES-R imagery and baseline products in identification and tracking of atmospheric rivers. This includes the LAP TPW and layered PW products as well as new water vapor channels on GOES-R.
