The Dreariness Index. My thanks to climate guru Brian Brettschneider (based in Alaska) for whipping together a useful index that combines total precipitation, wet days and average cloud cover to create one index that summarizes how gray/damp canada goose a specific part of the USA is. Here's an excerpt from Brian's post: "In previous posts, I have looked at total rainfall, number of wet days, and cloud cover independently of one another.

Snowfall Potential Into Friday Morning.

canada goose uk shop GOES 16: True Color Makes a Comeback. Seeing Earth as it really appears? Sounds like a good idea to me very much looking forward to the new data coming from GOES R, now known as GOES 16. Visible light comprises the range of wavelengths that can be seen with the naked eye. A true color image of Earth, which uses that visible light, depicts features like blue oceans, white clouds, and green vegetation, similar to a film camera. "It's great to see true color come back into the mix," says Tim Schmit, NOAA satellite research scientist working with researchers at the University of Wisconsin Madison Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS). "Not only does it help round out the toolkit available on the ABI, but the true color images have long had an impact on how we see our Earth and its weather," adds Schmit." canada goose uk shop.
