Posted On: July 10, 2014 - By: Dan Bikos


This blog entry consists of a youtube video (8 minutes in length):

After viewing the video, compare the GOES-14 RSO visible loop that would’ve been as seen on AWIPS:

with the SRSOR loop over the same time period (1940 – 2040 UTC) – this is a 194 frame loop so be patient for it to load:

Use Ctrl + and Ctrl – to zoom in and out respectively.

What features can you see in the SRSOR (1-minute) animation that you cannot see in the RSO animation?  Make a list and compare with others in your office.  These are the benefits of high temporal resolution that will be available with GOES-R
