SatFC-G: Impact of Satellite Observations on NWP

This lesson covers how satellite observations inform numerical weather prediction models. It begins with a basic overview of what satellite data types are assimilated and how, and ends with an overview of how data from new instrument's may make it into a model.

This lesson is a part of the NWS Satellite Foundational Course for GOES-R.

More in-depth discussions and a quiz on the impacts of satellite observations on NWP can be found in the COMET lesson, How Satellite Observations Impact NWP.
