The Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) and NOAA-20 satellites provide global coverage of level-2 geophysical products from the Visible Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite, (VIIRS), Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS), Ozone Mapping and Profile Suite (OMPS), Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS), as well as the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR-2) from the Global Change Observation Mission-Water (GCOM-W1). These imagery, cloud, aerosol, land, ocean and atmospheric products are available to users via the NOAA Product Distribution and Access (PDA) and the Comprehensive Large Array-data Stewardship System (CLASS). In addition to these dissemination systems, the JPSS program has been working with the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) at the University of Wisconsin (UW) to migrate the JPSS algorithms to the Community Satellite Processing Package (CSPP) which supports the Direct Broadcast (DB) meteorological and environmental satellite community through the packaging and distribution of free open source science software. This talk will describe the algorithms that are currently available within CSPP and provide a migration plan for the remaining algorithms included in the CSPP software suite.
