GOES-R/JPSS Case Exercise: Products & Capabilities for Assessing Convective Initiation

GOES-R/JPSS Case Exercise: Products & Capabilities for Assessing Convective Initiation

This 45-minute lesson highlights a sample of GOES-R and JPSS satellite products that can provide useful information to forecasters during convective weather scenarios. In this lesson, the learner takes on the role of a forecaster working a shift during a potential severe weather day across Iowa. As a forecaster, the learner monitors and interprets various satellite products to better understand the pre-convective environment and identifies indicators of convective initiation.
