GRIP GOES 13 VISIBLE AND INFRARED IMAGES V1

The GRIP GOES 13 Visible and Infrared Images dataset was produced and archived in near real time at the Global Hydrology Resource Center throughout the Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP) campaign. The major goal was to better understand how tropical storms form and develop into major hurricanes. The GOES I-M Imager is a five channel (one visible, four infrared) imaging radiometer designed to sense radiant and solar reflected energy from sampled areas of the Earth. These image files were created for use with the Real Time Mission Monitor (RTMM). Generally, GOES-13 images are available for all dates between August 15 and September 30, 2010 at 15 minute intervals throughout this time period.
