Satellite Weather Images
<HTML><!-- eWebEditPro --><P><FONT face=Arial>Where can I find satellite weather images and data for the South Pacific?</P><B><P>Michael Carr responds:<BR></B>First contact OCENS (, since they <FONT face=Arial>post </FONT><FONT face=Arial>h</FONT></FONT><FONT face=Arial>igh-resolution images each day on their website. In addition, OCENS produces a software program that allows you to download and view high-resolution satellite images from NOAA's satellite directory free of charge. You can actually select the area of the globe along with&nbsp;dates and times. This is the best option since these images are very high resolution, in fact they provide half-mile pixel resolution!<BR><BR>You may also visit NOAA's significant satellite imagery site on the internet,</A>.<FONT face=Arial> Images </FONT><FONT face=Arial>are likely </FONT></FONT><FONT face=Arial>to be here, and if not, you'll find links to tropical satellite directories. I have found that OCENS SAA (Satellite Active Archive) software is the best method for obtaining and viewing images for specific locations at specific times.</P></FONT></HTML>
