Ground Satelit Receiver (GSR)

Ground Satelite Receiver is Building With Satellite facilities that can be used to monitor Earth’s weather and climate.   This image was taken at infrared wave band and illustrates the relative temperature / warmth or coldness of the objects observed by the weather satellite. Low clouds generally warmer temperatures and is relatively close to the surface of the earth and the dark blue s / d light green, while clouds of cooler temperature is generally higher peak orange cloud s / d pink light. Infrared imagery is particularly useful for detecting the clouds in both the time of day or night.

Image Animation example 6 Last Hour

The following animation shows the growth and movement of clouds. On this image, the clouds shown are clouds with peak temperatures of less than zero degrees Celsius. The colder the cloud peak temperature (indicated by color more white), the higher the potential for rain.
