OPC Anticipated Operational Impacts During NESDIS CIP InvocationFall 2009 COPC Meeting

Action item
Action Item Invocation

COPC Action Item 2009-1.4: CSAB will collect Operational Processing Center’s operational impacts during invocation of current NESDIS CIP capability, identify impacts that would be mitigated by a hot backup capability and report out to COPC

Finding: While OPCs report some impact during CIP implementation the greatest impact is related to applications/products not backed-up in the current CIP.

Recommendation: Close action item

Navoceano impacts
NAVOCEANO Impacts Invocation

  • MCSST processing will be minimally impacted during the time it takes the CIP to activate and provide the necessary 1b data to NAVO (less than 48 hours)

  • Altimetry processing will be impacted in that delayed JASON‐2 OGDR product delivery will adversely affect the wind/wave products we deliver to our customers

  • Optics processing will be completely disabled as CIP does not support MODIS data

  • If CIP were made a hot backup the only mitigation would be for the minimal impact to MCSST processing

Ncep impacts
NCEP Impacts Invocation

  • Model output degraded until CIP Phase 2

    • AMSU-A 1b Sounder Brightness Temperatures

    • AMSU-b 1lb Sounder Brightness Temperatures

    • MHS 1b Sounder Brightness Temperature

    • HIRS-3 1b Sounder Brightness Temperatures

    • HIRS-4 1b Sounder Brightness Temperatures

    • 1x1 Field-of-View Cloud Data (Cloud Top Pressure, Temperature)

  • Model output degraded

    • AIRS amd AMSU-A Every Field-of-View 1b Sounder Brightness Temperatures

    • 1x1 Field-of-View Satellite Soundings, Retrievals, Level 1c Sounder Brightness Temperatures

Afwa impacts
AFWA Impacts Invocation

  • Indirect impact since the UKMO model is the model of consistency. UKMO uses the following:

    • NOAA IR and microwave radiances (HIRS and AMSU)

    • DMSP microwave radiances (SSMI and SSMIS)

    • Aqua IR radiances (AIRS)

    • GOES-11 and -12 geostationary atmospheric motion vectors

    • Terra and Aqua polar atmospheric motion vectors

    • QuikSCAT and Coriolis scatterometer sea surface winds

    • Snow-cover analysis

    • NOAA vis and IR imagery (AVHRR)

  • Will not receive lightning and radar data via NOAAPort

  • Models utilize many sources of data to include NOAA polar orbiter-based microwave imaging data, high density GOES imagery as well as MODIS data. Loss of this data will degrade the performance of many AFWA-based models

Afwa impacts cont
AFWA Impacts – Cont. Invocation

  • Phased return of NESDIS products result in degraded production

  • Would not have a means of discriminating volcanic ash vs cloud/steam (MODIS is the best tool to use for this purpose - would like to see this added to the Phase 1-2 list as appropriate)

Afwa impacts cont1
AFWA Impacts – Cont. Invocation

  • Following items in Phase 1.5 will affect operations.

    • GFT (software)

    • IASI (data)

    • GRAS (data)

    • ASCAT (data)

    • GOME (data)

  • Major impact would be to the global model which in turn willdegrade the regional models based on the outage time

Afwa impacts cont2
AFWA Impacts – Cont. Invocation

  • Following items in Phase 2 will affect operations

    • QuikSCAT


    • AMSU (A/B)

    • Level 1b

    • TRMM

    • Family of Services?

    • Ingest

    • QuikSCAT (Level 2a/Level 2b?)

    • QuikSCAT Ambiguity (Level 2a/Level 2b?)

  • Loss of these data can be assessed as moderate impact

Afwa impacts cont3
AFWA Impacts – Cont. Invocation

  • Following items in Phase 3 will affect operations

    • Polar Winds

  • Outage will affect global model output and in turn impact the regional model output

Afwa impacts cont4
AFWA Impacts – Cont. Invocation

  • “The Following Applications Will Not Be Supported at the CIP Facility”, these items will affect operations.

    • ASCAT

    • IASI

    • MODIS

    • MODIS Lite

  • ASCAT and IASI would affect the WRF model and loss of MODIS would impact CDFS-II

  • Impact of these outages would be mitigated by the use of other data

  • Loss of ASCAT and IASI would have a greater impact on the global model which in turn impacts the regional model

Summary Invocation

OPCs agree that temporary application/product loss during CIP implementation has impact that persists only until CIP is fully executed.

OPCs will experience sustained impact during CIP from applications/products not included in CIP capability (see Non-CIP_Products in the background materials)
