Abstract : This guide provides background material on Direct Readout Infrared (DRIR) sensing from meteorological satellites, and on the application of DRIR data in analysis and forecasting. A series of case studies is presented to illustrate the discussion and to serve as a ready reference for use by the field forecaster. The material is intended primarily for use in providing local, tactical weather support. (Author)
