Satellite and radar are individually examined for their application to piloting and flight operations. The first part of the book looks at weather satellites : how they work, how pilots and aviation-associated persons can interpret and apply satellite images, ultimately to avoid flight hazards. Equal emphasis and explanation is given to the limitations of satellite imagery in flight applications. Weather radar fundamentals are outlined in the second part of the book : products and equipment, limitations and application in the flight environment. The book closes with section on risk evaluation and deicsion-making. Reference information and maps to plot radar locations, along with lists to decode location identifiers are provided.
