GOES-R Resource Reel

The new generation GOES-R satellites will carry significant improvements and technology innovation on board. GOES-R will be able to deliver a full globe scan in only 5 minutes, compared to the 25 minutes needed for the same task with the current GOES satellites. GOES-R's lightning mapper instrument is expected to improve warning lead time for severe storms and tornadoes by 50%. This without a doubt will help predict severe weather in advance and save more lives. This reel is a compilation of finished productions about the GOES-R mission as well as supporting materials such as animations, visualizations, and still images.

The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites – R Series (GOES-R) is the next generation of geostationary weather satellites. The GOES-R series satellites will provide continuous imagery and atmospheric measurements of Earth's Western Hemisphere and space weather monitoring to provide critical atmospheric, hydrologic, oceanic, climatic, solar and space data. This video is a short trailer that creates awareness about the upcoming GOES-R mission.    The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites – R Series (GOES-R) is the next generation of geostationary weather satellites.

ABI: The Future of Weather Monitoring The Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) is the primary sensor on the new generation GOES satellites, GOES-R. ABI will have 16 spectral bands, which will contribute to a greater number of products and better data quality. ABI will track and monitor cloud formation, atmospheric motion, convection monitoring, land surface temperature, ocean dynamics, flow of water, fire, smoke, volcanic ash plume, aerosols and air quality, as well as vegetation health. With 5 times faster coverage rate and 4 times better spatial resolution ABI is poised to become a true success story, benefitting the public by providing critical data.    ABI: The Future of Weather Monitoring

Tornado season began rather early in 2012. The GOES satellites send valuable data to help meteorologists stay a step ahead of severe storms. This video shows satellite imagery from the March 2-3, 2012 tornado outbreak that damaged severely Henryville, Indiana.    Tornado season began rather early in 2012.
