BACKGROUND

NOTE: The 1-minute data provided by GOES-10 will end as of 2240 UTC on 2 October 2006.  This is to avoid interference with communications as the satellite is approaching
GOES-13.  GOES-10 will start imaging again in mid November after it passes GOES-12. However, GOES-10 is scheduled to provide South America support at that time.

While being repositioned to the east, the GOES-10 satellite has been providing 1-minute imagery.  The area of coverage was over portions of the south central and southeast U.S.  The 1-minute images were available from 00-22 and 30-50 minutes after each hour. An archive of these images from late August through September is available from:
ftp://ftp.ssec.wisc.edu/rabin/goes10

Java based applications used for interactive animations were developed by Tom Whittaker of the Space Science and Engineering Center  SSEC, University of Wisconsin-Madison.  The animations can take a while to load, depending on network speed, computer systems, etc. Also, there can be a problem viewing these on certain machines (Macs).
