Using the Multisensor Advected Layered Precipitable Water Product in the Operational Forecast Environment

The Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere, via the Joint Polar Satellite System Proving Ground, developed an advectively blended layered precipitable water (ALPW) product that portrays moisture profiles at a common time across the grid. Using water vapor profile retrievals from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Microwave Integrated Retrieval System (MiRS) aboard polar-orbiting…

Development and Testing of a Decision Tree for the Forecasting of Sea Fog Along the Georgia and South Carolina Coast

A classification and regression tree analysis for sea fog has been developed using 648 low-visibility (<4.8 km) coastal fog events from 1998–2014 along the South Carolina and Georgia coastline. Correlations between these coastal fog events and relevant oceanic and atmospheric parameters determined the range in these parameters that were most favorable for predicting sea fog…

Applications of the 16 Spectral Bands on the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI)

The Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) on the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES)-R series has 16 spectral bands. Two bands are in the visible part of the electromagnetic spectrum, four are in the near-infrared, and ten are in the infrared. The ABI is similar to advanced geostationary imagers on other international satellite missions, such as the…
