Right now, over 70 satellite-focused, self-paced, online materials are freely available in English via the MetEd Web site at http://meted.ucar.edu/topics/satellite. Additionally, quite a few lessons are also available in Spanish and French making training more accessible to the international user community.
This presentation will highlight COMET's latest satellite training and education offerings that have been developed to educate users about NOAA's next generation weather satellite constellation including the GOES-R+ series, and S-NPP and JPSS missions. A recommended set of lessons for users who wish to learn more will be highlighted. We'll show how the lessons introduce users to the advances these systems bring to forecasting, numerical weather prediction, and environmental monitoring. The presentation will highlight other key new satellite training publications and describe our latest efforts for contributing to the preparedness of satellite users including NOAA's National Weather Service employees as they (prepare for)get ready to embrace these new capabilities.
