Summary
Abstract: The Synchronous Meteorological Satellites (SMS 1 and 2) and the
Geostationary Operational Environmental Systems (GOES 1, 2, and 3)
have provided continuous cloud-cover observations over the United
States since the early 1970's. Originally designed to support the
Global Atmospheric Research Program (GARP), the satellites were
positioned at 75W and 135W over the equator in a normal two-satellite
