Marsupial NOGAPS Guidance Imagery [NPS]


This data set contains marsupial tracking 3-day forecast imagery based on the NOGAPS model. Marsupial tracking is a real-time experimental forecast product to track the wave pouch and predict the tropical cyclogenesis location using global operational model output. The products were developed by Michael Montgomery of the Naval Postgraduate School. Data are available for the following dates: 20080812-818, 20080825-901, 20080905, 20080907, 20080912-918, 20080921-928, and 20081003
