This workshop is designed to communicate to users the new capabilities made possible by NOAA’s next generation GOES-R Series Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI), Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM), and derived products for improved environmental intelligence, forecasts and warnings. These new measurements will produce more timely, detailed, and accurate information than ever before. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to work with tropical specific case studies using GOES-16 data, showcasing the many applications to help improve forecasts and warnings of high impact weather and environmental phenomena. The primary goal of this workshop is to familiarize users with GOES-R Series capabilities, and how it can improve their services to customers, saving lives and property. The workshop format will consist of a balanced mix of presentation and guided hands-on exercises/case studies demonstrating application of the new GOES-16 products. Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptops/tablets to follow along with the workshop.
