More on Hurricane Gloria via AMS publications.

NOAA GOES-6 data are via the University of Wisconsin-Madison SSEC Satellite Data Services. McIDAS-X was used the generate the imagery. Of course the current generation of GOES imagers (ABI) provide much improved (spatial, spectral and temporal) imagery. Or see a CIMSS Satellite Blog post on Hurricane Sam.
