NEXRAD Radar For Dallas/Fort Worth

This is a composite plot of the radar summary, echo tops, storm movement, TVS and MESO signatures and watch boxes. The radar summary is color coded by precip type. Greens, yellows and reds are rain. Pinks are mixed precipitation (freezing rain, sleet). Blues are snow. NOTE: Radar data is susceptible to a phenomena called anomalous propagation. This generally happens at night and appears as a area of 20 dBZ echos (darkest green) which is centered around each radar site and expands with time. To try and reduce the problem, low echo values near the radar sites have been removed.


GOES-16
GOES-16, formerly known as GOES-R before reaching geostationary orbit, is the first of the GOES-R series of Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) operated by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). GOES-16 serves as the operational geostationary weather satellite in the GOES East position at 75.2°W, providing a view centered on the Americas. GOES-16 provides high spatial and temporal resolution imagery of the Earth through 16 spectral bands at visible and infrared wavelengths using its Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI). GOES-16's Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) is the first operational lightning mapper flown in geostationary orbit. The spacecraft also includes four other scientific instruments for monitoring space weather and the Sun.
The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) program began as a joint effort between the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in 1975 to develop geostationary weather satellites following the success of the Applications Technology Satellite (ATS) and Synchronous Meteorological Satellite programs beginning in 1966. In the 1999 Operational Requirements Document (ORD) for the Evolution of Future NOAA Operational Geostationary Satellites, NOAA listed instrument requirements for the next generation of GOES imager and sounder. Top priorities included continuous observation capabilities, the ability to observe weather phenomena at all spatial scales, and improved spatial and temporal resolution for both the imager and sounder. These specifications laid the conceptual foundations for the instruments that would eventually be included with GOES-16.

GOES 16 Visible Radar


The 0.47 micrometer (µm), or “blue” band, one of the two visible bands on the ABI, provides data for monitoring aerosols. The geostationary 0.47 µm band provides nearly continuous daytime observations of dust, haze, smoke and clouds. Measurements of aerosol optical depths (AOD) will help air quality monitoring and tracking, respectively. This blue band, combined with a “green” band and a “red” band (0.64 µm), can provide “simulated natural color” imagery of the Earth. The 0.47 µm band is also useful for air pollution studies and improving numerous products that rely on clear-sky radiances (such as land and sea surface products).
GOES 16 Longwave Infrared


The traditional longwave infrared window (11.2 micrometer (μm)) band enables operational meteorologists to diagnose discrete clouds and organized features for general weather forecasting, analysis, and broadcasting applications. Observations from this infrared window channel can characterize atmospheric processes associated with extratropical cyclones and also in single thunderstorms and convective complexes. The window channel also contributes to many satellite derived products, such as precipitation estimates, cloud-drift winds, hurricane intensity and track analyses, cloud-top heights, volcanic ash detection, as well as fog detection, cloud phase, and cloud particle size estimates.
GOES 16 Shortwave IR 4 Hour Loop


The shortwave IR window (3.9 micrometer (μm)) band (on the current GOES imagers) has been demonstrated to be useful in many applications, including fog/low cloud identification at night, fire/hot-spot identification, volcanic eruption and ash detection, and daytime snow and ice detection. Low-level atmospheric vector winds can also be estimated using this band. The shortwave IR window is also useful for studying urban heat islands and clouds. Compared to nighttime, there will be overall warmer temperatures in this shortwave window band during the day, due to the additional reflected solar component
