GOES-16/JPSS Case Exercise: Monitoring the Rhea Oklahoma Grassland Fire

GOES-16/JPSS Case Exercise: Monitoring the Rhea Oklahoma Grassland Fire
  • Identify different satellite products that can be used to detect and monitor fires and smoke.
  • Compare and contrast the environmental information provided by both high temporal resolution and high spatial resolution products.
  • Interpret relevant geostationary and polar-orbiting satellite products to maximize the utility of the information they provide for detection and monitoring of wildland fire and smoke.
  • Evaluate potential fire and smoke impacts and the status of the evolving fire using the current new-generation GOES-R and JPSS satellite products presented in the lesson.
