Hurricane Dorian | NOAA Satellite

Hurricane Dorian | NOAA Satellite
NOAA's GOES East weather satellite captured this GeoColor view of Hurricane Dorian, a powerful Category 5 storm. Its maximum winds have increased to near 175 mph with gusts over 200 mph.

GeoColor is a multispectral product composed of True Color (using a simulated green component) during the daytime, and an Infrared product that uses bands 7 and 13 at night. During the day, the imagery looks approximately as it would appear when viewed with human eyes from space.

Geocolor was developed at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) and STAR's Regional and Mesoscale Meteorology Branch (RAMMB).
