NOAA-NESDIS Award Increase for CIMSS

On July 2, 2019, NOAA NESDIS approved a request by the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) to increase their funding limit by $3,000,000 to cover award activities through the project end date of June 30, 2020. CIMSS research increases understanding of remote sensing of the Earth and its application to weather forecasting and nowcasting, clouds and radiation, the global hydrological cycle, environmental trends, and climate. CIMSS scientists are engaged in a broad array of research activities ranging from using real-time Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) observations to derive atmospheric stability indices in support of severe weather forecasting, to designing the next generation satellite instruments.

The Cooperative Research Program (CoRP) of NESDIS' Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR) manages a coast-to-coast research coalition of the federal government and universities. CoRP's branches, Institutes and its Center work together on remote sensing of the environment in these focus areas:

  • Conduct investigations of the Earth with satellite observations
  • Design observing systems for satellites
  • Develop algorithms, products and applications for satellite data
  • Simulate new observations from satellites
  • Calibrate the data from new instruments, and calibrate one satellite with another
  • Design new processing systems (such as data compression)
  • Verify the accuracy of satellite data and data from the field

Data, algorithms, and images presented on STAR websites are intended for experimental use only and are not supported on an operational basis.  More information
