The SSEC Data Center has started ingesting Landsat-8 data, and serving the data up as McIDAS AREA files via ADDE. The image above compares Landsat-8 visible imagery (in the blue part of the visible — near 0.50 µm) that has been scaled down by a factor of 6 from the native 30-m resolution with GOES-13 visible imagery that has been magnified by a factor of 5 from the nominal 1-km resolution. A full-resolution image from Landsat-8 of the convective cell just southeast of Ft. Atkinson, WI is shown here.
