NOAA POES (HRPT)
  • The Alaska Region NOAA POES system is maintained during normal business hours. The data is received via a downlink located at the Anchorage Forecast Office. The raw data is then processed, split into individual sectors, georeferenced, and then distributed throughout the region. The entire process, from when the downlink starts receiving the raw data, until the images are available for download can range from 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the pass coverage and sector.
  • The schedule listed is produced by National Weather Service staff and covers a 48-72 hour period. Not all sectors will be produced from every pass. The pass must go over the mid point of the sector (indicated by the red dot in the thumbnails) in order for that sector to be generated. The only exception is the AFM mosaic.
  • A 24 hour archive of each sector is available, along with a loop consisting of the last 10 images. The loops are not as useful as the GOES loops, due to the long time in between coverage, and the partial coverage of sectors. However the more northern sectors can be useful as the pass coverage and frequency increases.
