This in-person short course will teach participants how to access, use and apply GOES-R and JPSS satellite data and products by exploring operational scenarios that address forecasting challenges and improve data driven decision making to mitigate the impact of environmental disasters.
|Participant Cap:||Not Announced|
This satellite training course will provide participants an opportunity to access, use and apply GOES-R and JPSS satellite data and products in two hands-on training exercises of operational scenarios to address forecasting challenges and improve data driven decision making to mitigate the impact of environmental disasters. Satellite subject matter experts will provide instruction and demonstration on how to use readily available tools to process, display, and analyze GOES-R, JPSS, and other environmental satellite data and products to address (1) Fire and Smoke, and (2) Precipitation and Flooding effects on society’s environmental security. Hands-on exercises will utilize satellite data to focus on the impact of predicting and communicating events from each topic while addressing the environmental security influences. Upon the completion of the short course, early to mid-career academia, researchers, forecasters, and broadcasters will have a working knowledge of the Fire and Smoke, and Precipitation and Flooding satellite data and products for weather forecasting, prediction, monitoring and/or research.
