Salon H (Hilton) (Austin, Texas)
Natalia Donoho, NOAA/NESDIS, Suitland, MD; and D. McNamara, C. Sisko, A. Graumann, E. J. Kearns, and K. Feiner

The purpose of this presentation is to highlight access and availability of NOAA's environmental satellites data for near real time (NRT) and retrospective product users. This work includes an overview of the current constellation of NOAA operational satellites and methods of distribution and access to data, imagery and products offered by the NOAA’s Office of Satellite and Product Operations (OSPO), NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), and NOAA Big Data Project. In particular, emphasis on the various levels of services for current observations will be presented, including terrestrial data distribution, direct broadcast (DB), web-based data archive system, cloud providers, and some experimental sources, with focus on level 1 and primary level 2 data from Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-R Series (GOES-R) and Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS). This presentation will also provide an overview of the latest technology improvements that leverage an enterprise approach and entails scalability for distribution of exponentially increasing data volumes from future NOAA satellite and partner missions.
