Satellite Jet Analysis

Satellite Jet Analysis
  • Describe the height, width and intensity variations of jetstreams, and explain how that can impact how they appear in NWP output and water vapour imagery
  • List the different indicators of the location of the jetstream within water vapour satellite imagery
  • Analyse water vapour satellite images to find the high-probability areas of jetstreaks by using the following indicators:
    • Strong Brightness Temperature Gradients
    • Transverse Banding
    • Fastest Relative Speeds and
    • Intensifying Ridging
