Introduction


This module is part of the satellite foundational course for GOES-R (SatFC-G). This particular module covers the life cycle of extra-tropical cyclogenesis. Learning objectives include:

  1. Identify the components of cyclogenesis as viewed by GOES-R proxy satellite imagery.
  2. Follow the evolution of a typical (e.g., “basic”) cyclogenesis event with GOES-R proxy satellite imagery.
  3. Understand how the new capabilities of GOES-R aid in identification of cyclogenesis evolution.

Since the size of this module is greater than 100 MB, we recommend that you utilize either the Download video OR YouTube version below.
