Satellite Feature Identification: Atmospheric Rivers: This module presents the global moisture transport phenomenon known as the atmospheric river (AR). ARs are responsible for transporting the majority of maritime moisture from low to middle latitudes.
CIRA Blended TPW and Anomaly Products: This 30-minute module presents the CIRA blended total precipitable water (TPW) and associated TPW anomaly products.
NESDIS GOES-R QPE: This short reference guide describes the NESDIS GOES-R quantitative precipitation estimation product suite in the context of operations. GOES-R QPE uses both infrared and microwave data to retrieve rainfall rates in both the GOES East and GOES West domains, and the mechanics of this algorithm are briefly described. The rainrate and accumulation products are shown in a number of operationally-based examples, demonstrating the uses of GOES-R QPE in different regions and environments.
VISIT offers a wide selection of satellite remote sensing training materials. See the VISIT Training Sessions webpage for a complete listing.
The National Weather Service Forecast Decision Training Division (FDTD) Satellite Application Webinars are peer-to-peer learning; staff from Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs), National Centers, Center Weather Service Units (CWSUs), and River Forecast Centers (RFCs) lead the presentations. The webinars to share how to apply GOES imagery with other datasets for a specific operational application.
