A small subset of these GOES R Proving Ground products was evaluated in an operational setting at the National Weather Service Warning and Forecast Offices in Milwaukee/Sullivan Wisconsin (MKX) and Omaha/Valley Nebraska (OAX). A formal survey was developed to provide direct feedback to the developers. Products that were evaluated include Convective Initiation, Low Cloud/Fog, and GeoColor imagery. The products were used and evaluated in real-time forecasting situations, along with other traditional satellite imagery.
Results of the evaluations will be presented, including strengths and weaknesses of each product.
