Abstract:
The RAMSDIS online sytem: http://rammb.cira.colostate.edu/ramsdis/online/ The RAMSDIS online system offers real time NOAA GOES-10 and GOES-12 satellite data animations and single images. These images cover the contiguous United States only. The following products are available: ------------------------------------ 1 km Visible 4 km Short Wave - IR2 4 km Water Vapor - IR3 16 km PS Water Vapor - IR3 1 km Visible Average Sounder Precipitable Water Vapor Floater 4 km Visible 4 km Thermal Infrared - IR4 4 km Fog/Reflectivity Product 16 km PS Themal Infrared - IR4 4 km Thermal Infrared Average - IR4 Sounder Lifted Index Online Archives and Case Studies -------------------------------- - Space Shuttle Columbia Disaster (February 1, 2003, 10-18 UTC) - Super-Typhoon Pongsona -- GMS IR Center Relative Loop, 5-9 December, 2002 - Texas Tornado (March 28, 2000) touchdown in Fort Worth, TX (00:30 UTC) - Georgia Tornado (February 14, 2000) touchdown in Camilla, GA (05:09 UTC) - 30-min interval full resolution GOES-8 Visible Center Relative Loop of Hurricane Mitch on October 26, 1998 (Motion is 300 / 6 kt) - Tennessee Tornado (April 16, 1998) touchdown in Nashville, TN (20:32 & 22:15 UTC) - Alabama Tornado (April 9, 1998) touchdown in MS,AL,GA (01:00-03:30 UTC) - Virginia Tornado (April 1, 1998) touchdown in Beaver Dam, VA at 00:00 UTC - Georgia Tornado (March 20, 1998) touchdown in Murrayville, GA at 11:20 UTC - ECLIPSE 1998 (Feb. 26) - Hurricane Luis (Sept. 6, 1995, GOES-9) The intent of this program is to make high quality, digital satellite imagery data available to the National Weather Service's (NWS's) Forecast Offices. This is being done in order to familiarize NWS forecasters with the use and utility of this rich resource and in anticipation of the eventual implementation of the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System (AWIPS), a substantial upgrade to the present system for disseminating and presenting meteorological information to forecasters. RAMSDIS is currently installed in over 60 NWS Forecast Offices and National Centers.
