1 DoD Center for Geosciences/Atmospheric Research at Colorado State University Annual Review Nov 15-17, Meteosat Second Generation Algorithms for Use at AFWA Objectives: u Develop algorithms using Meteosat Second Generation data for installation at AFWA u When appropriate, utilize channels which are not available on other satellites, thereby extending and improving AFWA capabilities Stanley Q. Kidder, J. Adam Kankiewicz, and Kenneth E. Eis

2 DoD Center for Geosciences/Atmospheric Research at Colorado State University Annual Review Nov 15-17, DoD Relevance Clouds have a significant impact on DoD operations. u CI clouds impact reconnaissance, air-to-air refueling operations, and add error to infrared masint. u Mid-level clouds to fog impact air operations and flight safety as well as air-to-ground operations.

3 DoD Center for Geosciences/Atmospheric Research at Colorado State University Annual Review Nov 15-17, Algorithms Developed u Cloud Mask u Nocturnal Cloud Mask u Daytime Cirrus u Nocturnal Thin Cirrus u Precipitating Clouds u Multi-Channel Skin Temperature u Snow/Ice Mask, and u Contrail Detection Procedures
