FSL MADIS Winds Operational (3 hr) Data


The MADIS satellite wind dataset consists of multiple wind products from different "providers" that are integrated into a single dataset at FSL. Currently, the products consist of data from the GOES satellites. This dataset contains 3-hour winds that are produced on an operational basis. A companion dataset, "Satellite: FSL MADIS Winds Experimental (1 hr) Dataset," contains the rapid scan experimental winds that are produced hourly.

Archive note

No data are available from 9 January 2018 to 8 September 2019. During this period NOAA was transitioning this product to the new GOES-R series satellites (i.e. GOES-16). As of 9 September 2019, NOAA had completed the transistion and data are available from that date to present.
