    transitioning from AWIPS I AWIPS Legacy to AWIPS II AWIPS Migration Engaging in a two way dialogue to provide feedback to the developers from the users A key element of this activity is a sustained interaction between the developers and end users for the purposes of training product evaluation and solicitation of user feedback The Proving Ground relies on close coordination with the GOES R Algorithm Working Group AWG and Risk Reduction programs as sources of demonstration products and will enhance the operational transition pathway for those programs The intended outcomes of this project are Day 1 readiness and maximum utilization for both developers and users of the GOES R observing system and an effective transition of GOES R research products to the operational weather community The GOES R Proving Ground will facilitate the testing and validation of new ideas technologies and products before they become integrated into operational use This proving ground is an essential component of GOES R risk reduction which will help to ensure that users are ready for the new types of satellite imagery and products that will be available in the upcoming GOES R era Table of ABI bands GOES R is scheduled to be

    This continuing multi year effort includes finding new ways of using existing space based resources to emulate GOES R imagery and products readying GOES R and Proving Ground products for operations through incorporation into the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System AWIPS and building a close relationship between algorithm developers and users to ensure a two way dialogue that results in the best possible transition from current GOES to GOES R deployment More information on the GOES R Proving Ground Satellite Data Assimilation Improving weather forecasts for the Great Lakes Role Investigator The National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA operate a series of polar orbiting satellites which are used to make atmospheric measurements These space based observations have been shown useful in improving numerical weather prediction simulations This work includes using the Weather Research and Forecast WRF Model with initial conditions modified by data from two NASA satellites equipped with a MODerate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer MODIS to assess the impact of space based data on mesoscale weather simulations occurring on a horizontal grid of 20 kilometer spacing or less over regional sectors A particularly notable region is the Great Lakes where the marine modified atmosphere plays a significant role in the weather of coastal communities The end goal is to show improved temperature and moisture forecasts and provide this data to the NWS in real time Current Projects AWIPS Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System OB5 through OB9 and D2D Display Two Dimensions Directory AWIPS MODIS Project Web Site AWIPS CRAS Project Web Site AWIPS CRAS GRIB2 Project Web Site AWIPS GOES Project Web Site AWIPS AVHRR Project Web Site AWIPS CI Project Web Site AWIPS NRC Project Web Site AWIPS MIMIC Project Web Site AWIPS GEOCAT AK Project Web Site AWIPS GEOCAT WC Project Web Site Common Operations and Development Environment
