  WeatherTAP :: Satellite Tutorial
Satellites can be launched into a variety of orbits, but the two most common orbits for weather satellites are sun-synchronous and geosynchronous.
Although polar orbiting satellites have a high spatial resolution (depending on the satellite), the temporal resolution is poor compared to geostationary satellites.
Essentially, the satellite's speed matches the speed of the Earth's rotation and the satellite appears to be stationary relative to a fixed point on the surface.

 Weather satellite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A weather satellite is a type of satellite that is primarily used to monitor the weather and climate of the Earth.
Weather satellite images helped in monitoring the volcanic ash cloud from Mount St. Helens and activity from other volcanoes such as Mount Etna.
Visible-light images from weather satellites during local daylight hours are easy to interpret even by the average person; clouds, cloud systems such as fronts and tropical storms, lakes, forests, mountains, snow ice, fires, and pollution such as smoke, smog, dust and haze are readily apparent.

The final setup added a separate dish antenna and a separate receiver for reception of images from the Meteosat satellites at geostationary orbit.
