The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Weather Service (NOAA/NWS) in collaboration with the National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service (NOAA/NESDIS) Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) are conducting an R2O process for transferring new operational satellite data and products for use in forecast and warning operations. Data and products from the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (SNPP) are being introduced to NWS offices for evaluation and use in Impact-based Decision Support Services to support the NWS Weather Ready Nation initiative. Evaluations and experimental usage occur as part of NOAA's R2O process by conducting Satellite Proving Ground and Testbed activities. During those activities, subject matter experts, developers, and operational forecasters work together to develop and conduct training for NWS operational staff. This presentation will provide an overview of recent and planned training for JPSS ​data and ​prod​u​ct transition into NWS operations.
