Space weather applications from the NOAA GOES satellites
Howard J. Singer, NOAA/NWS, Boulder, CO; and S. Hill, T. Onsager, R. Viereck, and D. Biesecker
Our Nation's reliance on the GOES space environment measurements continues to grow in importance to support a diverse user community. GOES instruments monitor conditions on the sun and solar effects on the near-Earth space environment, which includes the magnetosphere, ionosphere, thermosphere and upper atmosphere. GOES data give an indication of conditions in space, they are used to drive and validate numerical models, and they provide a measure of long-term environmental trends. This presentation will provide an overview of: the status and future for the GOES observations; the space weather products derived from the data; and how these data and products benefit the Space Environment Center's customers which are adversely impacted by space weather. .
