GOES Infrared Animations for 2015

January 1st, 2016 |

The 10.7 micrometer infrared window channel on GOES-13 and GOES-15 helps monitor the state of the atmosphere and surface. The animations below, from GOES-13 (top) and GOES-15 (bottom), similar to the GOES Water Vapor Animations, show active tropical convection over the Pacific, relatively fewer tropical systems over the Atlantic, an active winter season storm pattern up the US East Coast at the start of the animation, and an active pattern along the US West Coast at the end.
