GWINDEX: GOES Rapid-scan WINDs EXperiment (GWINDEX)
The objective of the GOES Rapid-scan WINDs EXperiment was to demonstrate an improvement in quantity and quality of cloud-motion winds using 7.5 minute interval rapid-scan visible and infrared imagery from GOES-10. These winds were provided in order to improve the available remotely sensed data products over the eastern North Pacific for NWS (National Weather Service) forecasters, support PACJET and THORPEX initiatives, and assess data impact on the RUC model short-term forecasts.
