NOAA Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) 16 & 17

agriculturedisaster responseearth observationgeospatialmeteorologicalsatellite imagerysustainabilityweather

GOES satellites (GOES-16 & GOES-17) provide continuous weather imagery and monitoring of meteorological and space environment data across North America. GOES satellites provide the kind of continuous monitoring necessary for intensive data analysis. They hover continuously over one position on the surface. The satellites orbit high enough to allow for a full-disc view of the Earth. Because they stay above a fixed spot on the surface, they provide a constant vigil for the atmospheric "triggers" for severe weather conditions such as tornadoes, flash floods, hailstorms, and hurrican...
