Satellite Lab: Satellite Images and Loops for Lab

Please review this powerpoint presentation on sattelite interpretation before doing the lab
Here is a small tutorial written quite a while ago, but it should help a little
Here's a visible satellite loop of thunderstorms developing on a well defined cold front
Cyclone animation and labels (fronts, etc)
Well developed cyclone example with labels
Satellite example of a cold front moving down Front Range/High Plains
Overshooting Tops: Vis -- Note the bumps and shadows!
Overshooting Tops: IR -- The blue/cold tops denote the overshooting tops. Visible satellite is far easier but in this case you can see them on IR.
