Weather Forecasts become more Reliable by U.S. Satellite GOES R

As our technological advancement is consistently gearing towards a more predictable future, weather remains an important variable that needs to be disclosed accurately. All our day to day planning makes use of the available data. It becomes imperative that the weather forecasts become more reliable.

 Weather Forecasts become more Reliable by U.S. Satellite GOES R

On Saturday 19 November the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA)most reliable and accurate weather satellite, named as GOES R is scheduled to be launched to space. GOES-R is designed in a way that it can improve forecasts for severe weather events, from hurricanes to tornadoes and solar storms.

Amazingly, GOES R can accurately scan the entire hemisphere in 5 minutes.

Promptly, GOES R can update the weather forecast every 30 seconds.

Worlds most advanced digital camera

According to meteorologists this satellite GOES R is going to revolutionize the way weather is forecasted .It is augmented with;

  • GOES R will enable scientists to encounter constantly changing weather conditions,       by allowing the spacecraft to take pictures every 30 seconds
  •  the Global Lightning Mapper–tracking all sorts of lightening hazards
  •  the world’s most advanced digital weather camera named as Advanced Baseline         Imager that gives an image with a resolution of pixels  four times bigger than any        of the satellites previously used by NOAA.

More Detailed Weather 

The satellite GOES R will also project forecasters with more detailed information like;

  1. 16 channels, or “bands” beamed back to Earth, compared to the present satellite that  captures 5 bands.
  2.  meteorologists will be aware of the volcanic ash and dust availability in the atmosphere.
  3. how much water vapor is in the air.
  4. other variables like  a snow storm or a thunderstorm.
 Airlines can effectively utilize capabilities of GOES R to choose fuel-efficient routes across the globe. Many national and private events can be accordingly planned. Disasters caused by weather hazards can be controlled to some extent by taking necessary measures.

Every day I try to update my TECHNOLOGY DICTIONARY. I feel obligated to disclose it to the world . As it is said : "Technology helps you to accomplish a job more effectively, but Technology itself does not tell you about the way you can use it". For that part, keep your self updated to properly utilize these state -of-the art technologies, in order to make your fast moving life more manageable.
