Use of Advanced Sensor Technology to Improve Forecasts

Conference Program
View by day or program, includes author index and personal scheduler

We are soliciting papers for this session which discuss how advances in satellite sensor technology will impact numerical weather prediction model performance and the quality of products used by the forecaster communities.
The Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS), its risk reduction mission - the NPOESS Preparatory Project (NPP) satellite, and the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite – R (GOES-R) series of satellites, are dawning a new era in environmental remote sensing capability. This new era is made possible through advances in satellite sensor technology that are captured, for example, in the design of the JPSS/NPP Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) and the GOES-R Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) sensors. Topics of interest are analyses that compare the NWP model performance using representative data from JPSS and GOES-R sensors to data from their legacy sensors (MODIS, AIRS, IASI, etc.) and studies which describe how new and improved products made possible by the new sensor technology will improve forecaster capability to serve the public.
