Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS)
by Likun Wang
Dr. Yong Chen, a CICS-MD Research Scientist, was rewarded the best proceeding paper award for his paper titled as "CrIS Full Resolution Processing and Validation System for JPSS" authored by Yong Chen , Yong Han , Denis Tremblay , Likun Wang , Xin Jin, and Fuzhong Weng during the 20th International TOVS Study Conferences, which was held at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin from 28 October to 3 November 2015.
The International TOVS Study Conferences (ITSCs), which have met every 18-24 months since 1983, is a forum for operational and research users of TIROS Operational Vertical Sounder (TOVS) data from the NOAA series of polar orbiting satellites and other atmospheric sounding data. The purpose of the conference is to exchange information on methods for extracting information from these data on atmospheric temperature and moisture fields and on the impact of these data in numerical weather prediction and in climate studies.
Dr. Chen's paper is focused on the Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) - a key instrument onboard on Suomi NPP and future JPSS satellites, which provides the atmospheric sounding information for numerical weather prediction models. Dr. Chen has made significant contribution to develop the NOAA's first-ever full spectral resolution CrIS data precessing system. The high-quality shown in his paper, perhaps most importantly, the innovativeness and accomplishments from his paper have fully convinced the conference committee how important his work is to promote the use of NOAA data.
