GOES-R Series Faculty Virtual Course: Severe Storms

GOES-R Series Faculty Virtual Course: Severe Storms
  • Describe the changes to resolution, frequency, and latency of GOES-R and how those benefit severe weather analysis and forecasts
  • List and describe derived GOES-R products that will assist with monitoring both the pre-storm and the severe storm environment
  • Explain how RGB composites from GOES-R may improve the ability to monitor details about severe storm initiation and evolution
  • Describe some storm scale features detected by GOES R that will make it easier to identify features frequently associated with severe storms
  • Describe the valuable lightning information from GLM, including both the total flash count and the spatial distribution
  • Explain how GLM data might be used to diagnose lightning jumps and what that means for storm strength and evolution
