5th GOES Users' Conference


The GOES-R User Readiness Group, engaging and preparing the users for GOES-R data

Kenneth H. Lowe, Noblis, Falls Church, VA; and M. Goldberg and J. Daniels

The instruments on the next generation of Geostationary Environmental Operational Satellite's (GOES-R series) require the development of state-of-the-art algorithms to convert raw instrument data into calibrated radiances and derived geophysical parameters. The GOES-R Program Office has tasked the NESDIS/STAR Algorithm Working Group (AWG) to develop, demonstrate and provide recommended and preferred algorithms, end-to-end product algorithm capabilities and product algorithm enhancements. The AWG algorithms will take advantage of the improved spatial, spectral and radiometric resolutions of the GOES-R instruments to create new and enhanced products for the user community. At the 2007 AWG Annual Meeting, the need for engaging and preparing users of GOES-R products was established and a User Readiness Group was created. The user community is identified and the process for informing the users on algorithm developments and product enhancements is detailed.
