The multispectral image product described in this paper resulted from research performed under NOAA NA37RJ0202. Ms. Winston is supported by the Focus on Integrated Remote Sensing Technology Training (FIRSTT) program and will be moving to Norman, Oklahoma, later this year as one of CIRA’s FIRSTT meteorologists.
