2 Why GOES-R? Visual & IR Imagery Lightning Mapping Space Weather Monitoring Solar Imaging GOES-R will provide improved detection and observations of meteorological phenomena that directly impact public safety, protection of property, and economic health and development 2 Improve hurricane track & intensity forecasts Increase thunderstorm & tornado warning lead time Improve aviation flight route planning Data for long-term climate variability studies Improve solar flare warnings for communications and navigation disruptions More accurate monitoring of energetic particles responsible for radiation hazards to humans and spacecraft Better monitoring of Coronal Mass Ejections to improve geomagnetic storm forecasting

10 GOES-13 Winds Over Hurricane Irene Using GOES-R Clear-Sky Mask, Cloud and Derived Motion Winds (DMW) Algorithms Slide courtesy of J. Daniels, NOAA/NESDIS Significance: Early demonstration of GOES-R algorithms using current operational GOES imagers. Plans and work in place to replace existing operational GOES cloud and DMW algorithms with GOES-R algorithms. Sponsored by the GOES-R Program Office and OSD Routine (hourly) experimental production of winds derived from GOES-13 11.2um imagery has been established over the Continental United States (CONUS) within STAR’s collaborative computing environment Some modifications have been made to the GOES-R cloud and wind algorithm software to account for the current operational GOES imager instrument characteristics Winds derived from GOES-13’s visible, short-wave IR, and water vapor bands will be added to the automation scripts in the near future Derived winds will be validated against available reference/”ground truth” winds observations captured from other observing systems Derived winds are being archived locally for use in future retrospective data assimilation studies within the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP)’s Rapid Refresh and Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) systems. Supports the WEATHER & WATERGoal Supports the WEATHER & WATER Goal High-Level 100-400 mbMid-Level 400-700 mbLow-Level >700 mb Cloud-drift winds derived from 15-minute GOES-13 imagery over Hurricane Irene at 1930 UTC on 26 August 2011 using the clear-sky mask, cloud, and derived motion wind algorithms developed for the future GOES-R Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI). 10

11 Influence of Assimilating High-resolution Satellite-Derived Winds on Mesoscale Analyses and Forecasts of Tropical Cyclones -- Example: Hurricane Ike (2008) -- P ≤ 350 hPa 350 800 hPa Intensity analysis Left: Assimilation of the rapid-scan winds into the mesoscale DART/WRF system produces superior analyses of Hurricane Ike’s intensity (OBS) over a Control (CTL) without the winds. Velden, CIMSS Above: As a proxy for GOES-R 5-minute imagery, GOES-East rapid-scan imagery (7-min) is used to derive winds. The coverage vs. normally-available winds is substantially increased over Hurricane Ike.

13 13 OBS-NSSL MOSAIC Precip CTRL Total lightning data used as a tool within NWP models to provide better initial conditions GLM Total lightning proxy data from the ENTLN were assimilated into the WRF-ARW model at cloud- resolving scales. Improved Initial Conditions will provide a better physical background at analysis time towards improving short term high impact weather forecasts (~3h). Lightning data can also used to limit the presence of spurious convection (and cold pools). Key in radar data sparse areas. To alleviate the need to use proxies for lightning in the model (e.g. lightning threats), full charging/discharge physics are currently being implemented into WRF-ARW within the NSSL 2- moment microphysics.
