How can we best exploit satellite information for improving weather and climate predictions? What is needed to create consistent long term records of satellite products for use in climate activities? What are the research needs to ensure we extract optimal information from future satellites sensors?
These questions lie at the core of CICS-MD mission of supporting NOAA’s ability to use satellite observations and Earth System models to advance the national climate mission. Our people, research scientists and research engineers along with academic personnel, strive to make certain that our research is transferred to NOAA operations. We also believe in the need of developing and maintaining interactions with a broad community. Outreach, education, training, climate literacy activities are part of our vision for a successful return to society of the confidence they have entrusted us.
