据CNET报道,暴风雨、火山喷发、野火、云层......美国国家海洋和大气管理局(NOAA)新的GOES-18卫星将见证这一切,帮助人们更好地预测和了解天气、气候问题和自然灾害。美国宇航局(NASA)于3月1日发射了这颗卫星,它最初被称为GOES-T,现在它正在发回令人大开眼界的地球视图。

NOAA周三分享了该卫星的第一张图像。一段视频展示了精彩的地球照片和风暴、沙尘和野火镜头。

GOES-18是一颗地球静止卫星,因此它保持在赤道上空22236英里(35800公里)的轨道上,使它能够持续地观察西半球,随时跟踪地球的同一片区域。“我们在这颗卫星上得到的数据是以前卫星的30倍,”GOES-T的副项目经理Alreen Knaub说。“我们正在研究空间天气、太阳天气和地球天气。”

新的图像显示该卫星正在按预期运行。NOAA在一份声明中说:“GOES-18目前正在对其仪器和系统进行发射后的测试、验证和校准,以便为其运行做好准备。如果一切顺利,该卫星将在2023年初获得一个新的名字,即GOES West,因为它将接替面临技术挑战的现有GOES-17卫星。”

GOES-18将成为天气预报和跟踪下面的风暴和灾害的重要工具。

NOAA shared the first image of the satellite on Wednesday. A video shows wonderful pictures of the earth and scenes of storms, dust and wildfires.

GOES-18 is a geostationary satellite, so it remains in orbit 22236 miles (35800 km) above the equator, allowing it to continuously observe the Western Hemisphere and track the same area of the earth at any time. "the data we got on this satellite is 30 times that of previous satellites," said Alreen Knaub, deputy project manager at GOES-T. "We are studying space weather, solar weather and earth weather."

The new image shows that the satellite is running as expected. "GOES-18 is currently testing, verifying and calibrating its instruments and systems after launch to prepare them for operation," NOAA said in a statement. If all goes well, the satellite will be given a new name, GOES West, in early 2023, as it will replace the existing GOES-17 satellite facing technical challenges. "

GOES-18 will be an important tool for weather forecasting and tracking of storms and disasters below.
