NOAA’s long-standing mission of science, service and stewardship is accomplished through long term goals and objectives administered by four key line offices, National Weather Service, National Marine Fisheries Service, National Ocean Service, and the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research.   This presentation charts how these long term goals and objectives of enabling data, provisioned by the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service, is input into forecast models and applications which continue to improve environmental predictions and assessments.   

For each NOAA line office, the analysis presented will aid in balancing Suomi NPP and JPSS high resolution global surveillance and observations with different user focus areas (i.e. fire weather vs routine weather)  enabling mission continuity with efficient use of polar orbiting satellite resources.  In the end, reliable performance of forecast models and applications will provide measurable evidence that JPSS capabilities satisfy NOAA mission service area needs for each line office in addition to academia, international partners and public consumers.
