Research to Operations Pathway for Satellite Data Retrieval Algorithms
This session seeks papers that discuss the process of developing, calibrating, validating, and updating operational algorithms for retrieving data products from a new generation of polar-orbiting and geostationary environmental satellites. These algorithms often require real or simulated research data sets to validate their value to improving operational products and services. Topics of most interest relate to the life-cycle processes for development and maintenance of these new science based retrieval algorithms, as well as, the infrastructure needed to support them. Also of interest are topics that highlight the challenges of having a greatly increased data volume; the opportunities for improved services enabled by significantly reduced data latency; improved temporal, spatial, and spectral resolution; and the development of blended algorithms that take advantage of observations from multiple sensors and satellites.
