Remote sensing of tornadic storms from spaceBy using infrared images obtained from GOES satellite, the digital count values of pixels representing blackbody temperatures of the cloud top, convective storms are observed throughout their life cycles. Clouds associated with a tornadic storm are compared with those without a tornadic storm to illustrate how the infrared and visible observations from a geosynchronous satellite can be used to study the differences in their life cycles.
