Abstract: Geostationary satellite-derived wind sets have traditionally been generated from image triplets with 30 or 60 minute intervals, and occasionally 15 minute intervals. During GOES special rapid-scan operations, co-located images are available at intervals of 7.5, 5, 3, and even 1 minute. The area covered is reduced as the interval decreases. In this experiment images at five minute intervals were used for the 0.65 micrometer VIS, 3.9 micrometer IR (darkness only), and 10.7 micrometer IR channels. GOES-11 was brought out of storage and image products were centered on the TCSP study region. Regular image processing was available beginning on 12 July. The scan schedule was maintained through the end of July.
