WMO Space Programme Objectives

Enhancing the space-based Global Observing System

Users: WMO Members and Programmes

Satellite operators

Improving availabilityof & access to satellite data and products

Strengthening users’ capabilityto benefit from satellites

NOAA 2011 Satellite Direct Readout Conference


Space-based Global Observing System Schematic

NOAA 2011 Satellite Direct Readout Conference


Challenges and responses 1 space based observing system
Challenges and responses (1)Space-based observing system

  • Coordinating and optimizing the space-based GOS

    • Requirements and Gap Analysis

    • Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites (CGMS)

  • Building up a sustainable climate observing system

    • Gaps on observation of ECVs require broad collaboration

    • « Architecture » concept being developed with CEOS, CGMS

  • Continuity and upgrade of operational meteorological missions

    • Radio-occultation, scatterometers, hyperspectral IR LEO & GEO

    • Higher resolution of GEO and LEO

  • Interoperability and consistency of global system

    • Intercalibration with reference sensors

NOAA 2011 Satellite Direct Readout Conference


Global Space-based Inter-calibration System (GSICS)

NOAA-CMA-CNES-EUMETSAT-IMD-ISRO-JAXA-JMA-KMA-NASA-NIST-USGS-WMO

LEO-LEO intercalibration

  • Routine IR inter-calibration against IASI and AIRS on simultaneous overpass

  • VIS and MW calibration under development

GEO versus LEO

Products

Applications

From Satellite data

NOAA 2011 Satellite Direct Readout Conference


Challenges and responses 2 data products availability and accessibility
Challenges and responses (2)Data/products availability and accessibility

  • Moving from data to products

    • Sharing development and validation efforts

    • Encourage responsibilities for regional/global products

    • Validated, documented, quality controlled

  • Data & products accessibility

    • Direct Broadcast on agreed standards and frequencies

    • Integrated dissemination systems (e.g GEONETCast)

    • Searchable in catalogues (metadata) in WMO Information System

Space weather
Space Weather

  • More vulnerability to Space Weather effects with increased use of satellites and cross-polar flights

  • New solar cycle

  • Emerging Space Weather operations can benefit from experience of weather community

  • 13 countries and 6 international organizations currently participating in this effort with WMO

NOAA 2011 Satellite Direct Readout Conference


Challenges and responses 4 getting closer to the users
Challenges and responses (4)Getting closer to the users

  • Regional initiatives

    • Americas: RA III/ RA IV Satellite Data Requirements Task Team

    • Africa: RA I EUMETCast Group

    • Asia: RA II Pilot Project

  • Virtual Laboratory for Education and Training

    • 12 Centres of Excellence world wide

  • Regional user conferences

    • Satellite Direct Readout Conference, GOES Users Conference

    • Asia-Oceania Meteorological Satellite Conference

    • EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference

NOAA 2011 Satellite Direct Readout Conference


As a conclusion
As a conclusion…

  • The Space Programme: a privileged framework for collaboration among satellite operators and user communities

  • Improves the benefit to all through sharing best practices

  • Relies on WMO Members and their space agencies

    • Thank NOAA for SDRO : interaction with users is a key for the success
