The TCSP GOES 11 Rapid Scan Winds dataset was generated from image triplets with 30 or 60 minute intervals, and occasionally 15 minute intervals. During Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) special rapid-scan operations, co-located images are available at intervals of 7.5, 5, 3, and even 1 minute. The area covered is reduced as the interval decreases. In this experiment, images at five minute intervals were used for the 0.65 micrometer visible, 3.9 micrometer infrared (darkness only), and 10.7 micrometer IR channels. GOES-11 was brought out of storage and image products were centered on the TCSP study region. The TCSP mission collected data for research and documentation of cyclogenesis, the interaction of temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind and air pressure that creates ideal birthing conditions for tropical storms, hurricanes and related phenomena. The goal of this mission was to help us better understand how hurricanes and other tropical storms are formed and intensify. Regular image processing was available beginning on 12 July. The scan schedule was maintained through the end of July.
