STAR Leads at the NOAA 2013 Satellite Conference

April 8, 2013 - STAR and NESDIS welcome today the attendees of the 2013 NOAA Satellite Conference to the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction. This conference combines for the first time the Direct Readout, GOES/POES, and GOES-R/JPSS communities and missions, creating a conference uniquely focused on the work of North American satellite scientists.

The conference keynote speaker is David Grimes, president of the WMO, and special guest speakers included Acting NOAA Administrator Kathryn Sullivan, Assistant Administrator Mary Kicza, and Assistant Administrator from NWS Louis Uccellini. The conference theme is "Strengthening Partnerships to Enhance User Readiness, Reception, and Utility". STAR scientists have been active at every level of planning, preparation, and organization of the conference, which is being held at NCWCP's new state-of-the-art auditorium and meeting facilities.

The conference runs April 8-12 at NCWCP and features presentations by a long list of STAR scientists including Fuzhong Weng on calibration/validation and data assimilation, Tim Schmit on the GOES-R ABI, Ingrid Guch on science advances and data fusion, Ralph Ferraro on precipitation, Al Powell on improving the use of satellite data at STAR, and others. The poster sessions, chaired by ASPB's Tim Schmit, feature 64 posters by STAR scientists.
