NASA’s GOES satellites have spied another Pacific storm headed downstream on the “Pineapple Express” atmospheric river. This narrow band of high moisture and heavy winds carried from the tropical Pacific waters around Hawai’i to North America’s west coast has delivered 100mph winds and over 50 inches of rain and snowfall to California in the past week. With GOES as our eyes beyond the skies, experts can better predict severe weather and provide more accurate guidance to keep people safer during potentially catastrophic storms.
Red Canyon is extremely proud to Improve Our Own through the GOES program by providing simulation testing as well as supporting NASA’s Launch Services Program. Check out the links below to learn more!
