The concept is to produce full spatial and temporal resolution GOES data over hurricanes. This would mean 1 km visible data and 4 km IR data at temporal resolutions limited only by the satellite.
HURSAT data from GOES is being tested. A month (September 2003) of test data is available for public comment. This includes rapid scan imagery of Hurricane Isabel in netCDF format. Please contact NCDC.SatOrder@noaa.gov for access to the HURSAT-GOES sample data.
If there is sufficient interest, NCDC will pursue expanding HURSAT-GOES to more hurricanes.
