5th GOES Users' Conference


Looking Ahead to GOES-R Space Weather Data Archive, Access, and User Services

Daniel C. Wilkinson, NOAA/NESDIS, Boulder, CO; and W. F. Denig

The first of the GOES-R series of satellites is scheduled for launch in 2014 and will introduce three new instrument suites to the user community.

The solar instruments include a solar X-ray sensor (XRS), an extreme ultraviolet sensor (EUVS) and a Solar X-ray imager (SXI) and will detect and locate X-ray flares, measure solar EUV flux and locate coronal holes.

The Space Environment In-Situ Suite (SEISS) will provide real-time measurements of the charged particle environment in geosynchronous orbit and will monitor geomagnetically trapped electrons and protons; electrons, protons, and heavy ions of direct solar origin; and galactic background particles.

The Magnetometer (MAG) will measure the earth's geomagnetic field at geosynchronous orbit in three-axes, providing information on the general level of geomagnetic activity and current systems in space. This information facilitates the detection of magnetopause crossings and sudden magnetic storm commencements, and detection of sub storms.

The ultimate repository for the data will be NOAA's Comprehensive Large Array-data Stewardship System (CLASS). All future users of these data are encouraged to express their wishes and concerns in the areas of user interface capabilities, archive latency, archive formats, delivery formats, delivery methods, browse capabilities, quality control, visualization, products, etc.
