NESDIS CoRP (Cooperative Research Programs)

STAR: Center for Satellite Applications and Research (nee ORA)


  • CISO

  • CIOSS: Cooperative Institute for Oceanographic Satellite Studies

  • CIMSS: Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies

  • CIRA: Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere

  • CICS: Cooperative Institute for Climate Studies

  • CREST: Cooperative Remote Sensing Science and Technology Center

  • What these CI’s do:

  • Design and evaluate future and present satellites sensors Risk Reduction, Cal/Val

  • Research in atmospheric remote sensing Products of NESDIS, NWS

  • Research in modeling and data assimilation NCEP models

  • Basic research in meteorology, atmospheric sciences

  • Outreach

  • To perform analogous functions to (2) and (3), CIOSS needs the IOOS (Integrated Ocean Observing System) to move forward, including modeling. CIOSS is helping to make that happen.

CIOSS Research Themes

  • Theme 1: Satellite Sensors and Techniques: Development of satellite oceanography techniques and applications; evaluation of existing and proposed satellite sensors, algorithms, techniques and applications.

  • Theme 2: Ocean-Atmosphere Fields and Fluxes: Development, evaluation and analysis of improved fields of physical and biological parameters in the upper ocean, and of surface parameters and fluxes at the air-sea interface, using combinations of remote sensing, in situ data and modeling.

  • Theme 3: Ocean-Atmosphere Models and Data Assimilation: Use of satellite-derived fields to force and evaluate numerical models of the oceanic and atmospheric circulation, including the assimilation of those fields using methods of inverse modeling. For some applications, the ocean models will include components of marine ecosystems.

  • Theme 4: Ocean-Atmosphere Analyses: Dynamical and statistical analyses of data sets derived from satellites, models and in situ instruments, in order to increase our understanding of the physical, chemical, biological, geological and societal processes that affect and are affected by the ocean-atmosphere system.

  • Theme 5: Outreach: We include three broad Outreach areas, each to be related to CIOSS research and its results.

    • Formal Education: K-12, Undergraduate & Graduate Students, Scientists, Managers, the Public. In courses, workshops, short courses, after school activities

    • Informal Education (“free-choice education”): Outside formal educations systems – science museums,

    • web sites, forums, etc.

    • Data Access: Methods of enhancing the use of satellite and model data sets.

CIOSS Research Themes

  • Theme 1: Satellite Sensors and Techniques:

  • GOES-R3, Ocean Vector Winds, VIIRS Cal/Val, NPP?, ALT?, SST?

  • Theme 2: Ocean-Atmosphere Fields and Fluxes:

  • Improved global SST fields (Reynolds); improved coastal winds, surface radiation, mesoscale circulation fields (ALT, SCAT, Radar)

  • Theme 3: Ocean-Atmosphere Models and Data Assimilation:

  • Coastal models with DA of ALT, Radar, moorings, …; Coupled ocean-atmosphere models; Pilot “Ocean Prediction” systems; Global model DA (IOM/ITR) implementation

  • Theme 4: Ocean-Atmosphere Analyses:

  • Air-sea interaction; Coastal frontal positions; Satellite climatology; Basin-scale modes; Surface slope vs poleward undercurrent; etc.

  • Theme 5: Outreach:

    • Formal Education: SMILE program

    • Informal Education (“free-choice education”): HMSC Interactive Displays

    • Data Access: Oregon Coastal Atlas (Ocean Coastal Management Program)

Pilot ocean predictions

Hyperspectral analysis (NESDIS, NRL)

“Dynamics” Working Group (NRL, NOS, JCSDA, NOPP)

Interactions now include: All 5 NOAA LO’S, NRL, NASA, NSF, ONR, State of Oregon, ECMWF, NOPP, JCSDA, IOOS Regional Associations, NSF ORION, and various academic institutions.

CIOSS Research Projects and Interactions

  • Interactions now include: All 5 NOAA LO’S, NRL, NASA, NSF, ONR, State of Oregon, ECMWF, NOPP, JCSDA, IOOS Regional Associations, NSF ORION, and various academic institutions.

  • The question is no-longer how to establish interactions with NOAA and other Federal partners; it is how to nurture the established or beginning interactions?

  • Annual proposal for Core Research

  • Proposals to various NOAA calls

  • Proposals to the JCSDA

  • Interactions within CIOSS WG’s (COAST, Oc Vector Winds, Dynamics, Products)

  • Workshops for specific activities

  • Interactions within the developing IOOS and ORION programs

  • Individual visits to either assess potential collaborations or to accomplish the research in those collaborations (“science exchanges”)

  • Visits in summer 2005 by Laury Miller (1+ week) and Dick Reynolds (~ 1 month) serve as models of successful science exchanges, both “exploratory” (Miller) and “working” (Reynolds) visits. To pay for Federal travel to CIOSS, we suggest that funds be held at NESDIS/STAR, under CIOSS’ control ($20-$40K)?
