THE USE OF GOES DATA AT THE NATIONAL METEOROLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF COSTA RICA

Mitch project
MITCH PROJECT INSTITUTE OF COSTA RICA

  • The server with the satellite imagery is located at the IMN of Costa Rica

  • All Central American weather services have access to the data

  • A software developed by CIRA makes the data available every half an hour in a very friendly way to be used by the forecasters.


DATA INSTITUTE OF COSTA RICA

  • Visible, IR (10.7 um) and water vapor imagery are constantly used at the forecast office.

  • Channel 5 (12.0 um) has not been used and channel 2 (3.9 um) will be used in the near future


Current applications
Current applications INSTITUTE OF COSTA RICA

  • The forecast office do not have any rain gauge data in real time at this moment

  • A precipitation algorithm developed by NESDIS is running in “real” time with the satellite images from the server at the IMN

  • Accumulated precipitation estimates in “real” time for the current time, the last 24, 6, 3 and 1 hour are available.

Future applications
Future applications INSTITUTE OF COSTA RICA

  • A fire algorithm: visible and 3.9 um imagery used.

  • POES imagery would be an important tool at this respect because of the higher resolution

  • The GMSRA algorithm: five channel imagery used. How the change in satellite can affect this aplication?


Aviation operations
Aviation operations INSTITUTE OF COSTA RICA

  • The airports in Costa Rica don’t have the software available at IMN.

  • Communication IMN-airports: from 5 a.m to 7 p.m

  • Imagery from the server is not available at the airports, it will be in the near future.
