The teletraining describes the University of Wisconsin CIMSS’ NearCasting product, which is derived from Lagrangian model output. The variable that is predicted by the model is equivalent potential temperature at multiple levels. Thus, the model produces near-term forecasts of convective destabilization.
This is an experimental GOES-R Proving Ground Product designed to foster GOES-R readiness.
