Results from the GOES-R Proving Ground Portion of the 2014 HWT Spring Experiment
GOES-R products demonstrated in the 2014 Spring Experiment included: WRF-NSSL Synthetic Satellite Imagery, UW/CIMSS NearCast System, UAH GOES-R Convective Initiation, UW/CIMSS Probability of Severe nowcast model, UW/CIMSS Overshooting Top Detection Algorithm, and the PGLM Total Lightning, Lightning Jump Algorithm and Total Lightning Tracking Tools from NASA/SPoRT. Additionally, GOES-14 provided the HWT with 1-minute Super Rapid Scan Operations for GOES-R (SRSOR) imagery from May 8 to May 25, illustrating the very high frequency scanning capability of GOES-R. GOES-14 1-minute imagery was also available to the EFP and in Storm Prediction Center (SPC) operations.
Results from the GOES-R portion of the 2014 HWT Spring Experiment are presented, including examples of product use and feedback from participants. Comments and examples from the EWP, EFP and SPC regarding the operational utility of 1-minute imagery will also be shown.
