  • 25 May 2001 - Gravity Wave Over Lake Michigan
    eventually reaching the lakeshore counties in central Wisconsin The fog and stratiform clouds that existed over Lake Michigan was dissipating in the wake of the gravity wave but as the wave feature intersected the coastal portions of Manitowoc and Sheboygan counties in Wisconsin outlined in yellow fog and stratus was driven inland several miles The air temperature at Manitowoc identifier KMTW dropped into the low to middle 40 s F

  • 24-25 May 2001 - Fires in Florida
    50 C and warmer yellow to red enhancement where fires are actively burning This fire complex began on 16 May in the Mallory Swamp area and had burned about 20 000 acres by the morning of 25 May The experimental GOES 8 Wildfire ABBA product below identified numerous fire pixels associated with the Dixie Lafayette complex as well as other smaller fires burning across the southeastern US on 24 25

  • 15 March 2001 - Blowing Dust Over Northwest Texas
    in the northern Texas panhandle and surface visibility was reduced to 2 5 miles at Childress Texas station identifier KCDS in the northern portion of the images above Pilot reports indicated that this blowing dust extended to heights of 7500 15000 feet above ground level The NOAA GOES 8 10 7 12 0 micrometer IR difference product above left shows a subtle signature indicating airborne dust across parts of the

  • 05 March 2001 - Nocturnal Fog/Stratus Over the Northern Plains
    northeastern South Dakota There is also evidence of fog developing in the James River valley region of east central South Dakota near Huron SD KHON Portions of central eastern North Dakota and eastern South Dakota which were not covered by the fog stratus were experiencing strong radiative cooling due to the extensive snow pack 10 34 inches and light winds and surface temperatures were dropping into the single digits F 13 to 17 C Regions beneath the fog stratus reported warmer surface temperatures from the middle teens F to the middle 20s F 3 to 8 C The tops of the fog stratus were actually warmer 10 to 14 C yellow enhancement on the 10 7um IR than the adjacent clear sky regions where radiational cooling was prevalent 15 to 20 C light blue enhancement on the 10 7um IR a phenomenon known as black stratus MODIS 10 7um IR MODIS fog stratus product Fade between MODIS IR and fog stratus product images Longwave IR and fog stratus product imagery from the Terra MODIS instrument above and below showed greater detail in the structure of the 2 main fog stratus features using the same enhancements as the GOES 8 imagery shown at the top of the page A narrow area of fog stratus was in the process of developing within the James River valley region of east central South Dakota note the surface reports of fog F and freezing fog ZF at Huron SD KHON and this elongated feature was detected very well by the MODIS fog stratus product below Though there was an indication of this James River valley fog feature on the GOES 8 fog stratus product the feature had better definition on the MODIS imagery MODIS 10 7um IR MODIS fog stratus product Fade between MODIS IR

  • 19 February 2001 - Eruption of Mt. Cleveland Volcano
    ash plume was spreading out in 2 primary directions one to the NNW and one to the SE as discussed in the Anchorage AK volcanic ash advisory issued after the eruption It is interesting to note that the higher level ash plume near 30 000 feet moving NNW was also evident on the GOES 10 6 7 micrometer IR water vapor channel above right MODIS IR difference product 23 10 UTC 19 February MODIS shortwave IR image 23 10 UTC 19 February The IR difference product using Terra MODIS data about 8 hours after the initial eruption above left shows that highest ash concentration brighter white enhancement continued to spread to the NW A closer view using the MODIS 3 9 micrometer shortwave IR channel above right reveals very warm pixels around 310 K brown enhancement over the southwestern end of Chuginadak Island where the volcano itself is located About 18 hours following the eruption 08 45 UTC on 20 February the MODIS 10 7 12 0 micrometer IR difference product below left shows that the ash plume had become further elongated into a narrow filament oriented NW SE over the Bering Sea also evident on GOES 10 data The

  • 12 February 2001 - Ice On Lake Erie
    had 9 to 10 tenths of ice coverage There is greater ice coverage on Lake Erie compared to the adjacent Lakes Ontario and Huron due to the fact that the water is more shallow in Lake Erie allowing the water temperatures to cool and freeze more quickly in winter GOES imagery documenting the evolution of Lake Erie ice cover during the 2000 2001 season are available from the Buffalo NY

  • 03 January 2001 - Wildfire Near San Diego CA
    county during the day Hundreds of people were evacuated from their homes and several structures were lost to the fire By the following day the fire had reached 10 000 acres in size The experimental Wildfire A utomated B iomass B urning A lgorithm ABBA identified numerous fire pixels within minutes of the start of the blaze in both the NOAA GOES 10 imagery above left and GOES 8 imagery above right GOES 10 3 9 micrometer shortwave InfraRed IR and visible channel imagery below show a closer look at the region The wildfire hot spots black to red enhancement are evident on the IR imagery while the visible channel shows that the smoke plume from these fires was drifting westward over the San Diego CA region and out over the adjacent Pacific Ocean GOES 10 shortwave IR image Java animation GOES 10 visible Java animation Fade between GOES 8 shortwave IR and visible images WSR 88D reflectivity Java animation NOAA ARL trajectories 1km 2km 3km AGL The smoke plume was also detected by the WSR 88D radar located near San Diego CA above left Air parcel trajectories from the NOAA Air Resources Laboratory HYSPLIT model above right show the
