Abstract

Manually Digitized Radar (MDR) and Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) thermal infrared (IR) data were merged to form a higher-resolution radar/IR product than that represented by the MDR. The combination MDR/IR maps were processed into a color coded map form and disseminated on a real-time basis through a computer network to users in the Florida agricultural community.
