      This book presents the principal structure of space systems, functionality, media and applications for modern remote sensing, transmission systems, meteorological antennas, propagation meteorological observation and transferring weather data from satellite to the ground infrastructures and users. The book starts with a short background to the development . Weather satellites, or meteorological satellites, provide continuous, up-to-date information about large-scale atmospheric conditions such as cloud cover and temperature profiles. Tiros 1, the first such satellite, was launched in ; it transmitted infrared television pictures of the earth's cloud cover and was able to detect the development.

    Meteorology is the study of the Earth's atmosphere and the variations in temperature and moisture patterns that produce different weather conditions. Some of the major subjects of study are such phenomena as precipitation (rain and snow), thunderstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes and typhoons. The importance of meteorological events is felt in. What is Satellite Meteorology? Satellite Meteorology refers to the study of the earth's atmosphere and oceans using data obtained from remote sensing devices flown onboard satellites orbiting the earth.. Observations and Measurements. Meteorology, like every other science, relies on careful and precise measurement of its subject.

    Weather Forecasting Using Surface Chart • Given that we know the weather associated with common features on a surface weather chart, for example: – cold front - narrow band of showers – NE of warm front - light/moderate wide spread precip. – warm sector - hot, humid – etc. • if we can predict the movement of these feature based on itsFile Size: 1MB.

This great book, writen by Dr. Taggart, is probably the single greatest source of information about weather sats, both low orbiting and geostationary.

Construction articles allow even a novice to build antennas for the low orbiting birds. Many photos show how your station needs to be set up as well as pictures from the sats themselves.5/5(2).

The focus is on man-made satellites, which are becoming smaller, smarter, cheaper, and easier to launch, having a longer life span, and are less susceptible to interference.

Furthermore, the book considers advances in several key technologies that affect the satellite industry. Includes extensive study questions and exercises after each : Mohammad Razani.

METEOROLOGICAL SATELLITES. Weather affects almost every known activity of man either directly or indirectly; and the probability of success of many enterprises, civil and military, can be noticeably increased if the weather factor can be counted as a "known parameter." The various weather services are constantly striving to provide this.

Weather Satellites are an important observational tool for all scales of NWS forecasting operations. Satellite data, having a global view, complements land-based systems such as radiosondes, weather radars, and surface observing systems.

There are two types of weather satellites: polar orbiting and geostationary. The book's step-by-step pedagogy makes this an essential training manual for forecasters in meteorological services worldwide, and a valuable text for graduate students in atmospheric physics and satellite meteorology.

FY-3 Meteorological Satellites AUTHORS TANG Yunqiu ZHANG Jiashen WANG Jingsong National Satellite Meteorological Center/National Center for Space Weather, China Meteorological Administration, Beijing ABSTRACT FY-3 is the second generation polar-orbiting meteorological satellite of China.

The first satellite named FY-3A of this series was File Size: 6MB.The weather satellite is a type of satellite that is primarily used to monitor the weather and climate of the ites can be polar orbiting, covering the entire Earth asynchronously, or geostationary, hovering over the same spot on the equator.

Meteorological satellites see more than clouds: city lights, fires, effects of pollution, auroras, sand and dust storms, snow cover. The World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) coordinates and guides international climate research to develop, share and apply the climate knowledge that contributes to societal well-being.
