NPOESS environmental data records
217D (Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center)
The National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) is the next generation polar environmental satellite. NPOESS has recently undergone a program restructure in which the system architecture and sensor manifest have seen significant changes. In addition to sensed raw data, NPOESS will provide a suite of end products known as Environmental Data Records or EDRs. These EDRs were developed by a multi-year process of requirements review with user communities and served as the basis for individual sensor designs. The poster provides details on the different products that will continue to be produced by NPOESS and those that are no longer available.
