COMET develops and produces webinars such as those featured in the GOES-R Series Faculty Virtual Course. This course's seven webinars, led by key experts in the satellite field, provide an introduction to the new capabilities and applications offered by the latest-generation GOES-R series weather satellites. The information presented builds on existing online resources available on MetEd and elsewhere to provide university faculty and others with a solid basis for using GOES-R/16 data in coursework and student research projects.
The following webinar focuses on the Geostationary Lightning Mapper. Other subjects in this course include the Advanced Baseline Imager, Tropical Cyclones, Severe Storms, RapidScan Imaging, Aviation Products, and Multispectral RGB Components.
