Abstract

One Provides Critical New Data and the Next is to predict the route of raft-borne refugees from Cuba. Launche d Since rafts move much like oil spills, Mooers and his The nation's first advanced geostationary satellite, team, Dong-Shan Ko and Don Olson, are able to GOES-8, was joined by the next craft in the series, predict the rafters' movement by keying in where and GOES-9 (GOES-J at preorbit) on 19 May 1995. To- when the refugees set sail in Cuba, or from where and gether, GOES-8 and GOES-9 will provide meteorolo- when in the straits the rafters were last spotted. The gists and researchers with better viewing angles of program uses calculations of eta model winds from the both the east and west U.S. coasts. This imagery will National Centers for Environmental Predictions, am- depict developing cloud formations, including hurri- bient surface current from SF-POM, surface wind drift, canes and winter storms, thus enabling forecasters to and subgrid-scale turbulent dispersion to predict and provide a more timely and accurate forecast. plot the movement of the rafters, which under favor- able (Trade) wind conditions require about five days to GOES-8, launched in April 1994, has been provid- reach South Florida.
