GWINDEX-3: 3rd GOES Rapid-scan Winds Experiment (GWINDEX-3)


The 3rd GOES Rapid-Scan Winds Experiment (GWINDEX-3) was conducted over the East Pacific Ocean. This experiment was coordinated by CIMSS (Chris Velden and Dave Stettner) and NOAA’s Forecast Products Development Team (J. Daniels), and ran through March 2003. Winds derived from GOES-10 rapid scan imagery were produced in real time and disseminated to National Weather Service forecast centers, as well as to the Pacific Landfalling Jets Experiment (PACJET) and The Observing System Research and Predictability Experiment (THORPEX) mission planning centers.
