Dear Colleagues

You are cordially invited to participate in the 2015 STAR JPSS Annual Science Team Meeting to be held August 24th - 28th, 2015, in the Auditorium and Conference Center at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) in College Park, Maryland.

The theme of the second annual meeting will be "JPSS-1 Readiness". The goals for the meeting are to present the accomplishments of the STAR JPSS program over the past year, and to highlight the progress in instrument calibration, ability, and algorithm upgrades as we prepare for next year's launch of JPSS-1. Through this meeting we plan to accomplish the following objectives:

  1. Review the progress of the STAR JPSS program over the past year and review the plans in the coming year, particularly as their relate to J1 pre- and post-launch activities;
  2. Engage with users and other stakeholders such as NASA, OSPO, OSGS, NDE, GCOM, JPSS Risk Reduction and Proving Ground, the JPSS Ground and Flight Segments, and industry partners.
  3. Review the latest developments in the integration of GOES and JPSS algorithms in the Enterprise algorithm system.
  4. Enhance interaction between SDR and EDR teams and facilitate science and technical exchanges among the teams.
  5. Hold splinter meetings with users to review and renew plans for improved utilization of JPSS products, especially with consideration of new capabilities of the J1 instruments.

Please pass this invitation to colleagues you feel might be interested in participating. Remote access via webex and conference call will be available.
