Abstract
From the beginning of December 1983 through mid-February 1984 the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) carried out an exercise to deliver temperature and moisture profiles, derived from the GOES-6 VISSR Atmospheric Sounder (VAS), to the National Meteorological Center (NMC) in time for input to the operational forecast at 1330 GMT. The purpose was to provide meteorological data coverage over the data sparse eastern Pacific (FPAC) where timely polar orbiting satellite data are not available. Although a product was delivered only 40 percent of the time, the experiment successfully demonstrated the feasibility of a totally automated VAS retrieval procedure. Data reliability achieved at the EPAC scale appears to be good, though lack of independent verification data requires that forecast impact studies delineate their ultimate value.
