AMS Composite GOES Image Viewer and Data Lister
The American Meteorological Society (AMS) Composite Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) Image Viewer and Data Lister is a small Java applet composite infrared (IR) image viewer that uses a near real-time composite infrared satellite picture of the U.S. to interactively explore the temperature as seen from space. The images are created every three hours from GOES-east and GOES-west by the McIDAS system. The composite IR image allows you to move the mouse pointer over the image while the temperature (degrees C), latitude and longitude are listed.
