Lee’s Extratropical Transition as Seen with MODIS

These MODIS RGB Air Mass and water vapor images for September 4 @ 0828UTC form companion images to the GOES Sounder products provided in the previous post. While GOES Sounder imagery provides continuous temporal coverage of T.S. Lee, the moderate spatial resolution and precision of the MODIS imagery adds significant detail to the GOES Sounder products. These capabilities will be available from the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) on the GOES-R satellite which will combine spatial and spectral capabilities similar to MODIS with temporal continuity from geostationary orbit.

  1. Excellent round of posts with respect to the satellite applications for tropical meteorology. I am curious about whether these RGB imagery will be prepared for ingest at WFO ABQ in the near future?

  2. SPoRT just received funding from NOAA to begin to integrate selected RGB products into AWIPS and AWIPS2 to demonstrate their utility in advance of similar capabilities from the Advanced Baseline Imagery on GOES-R.
