The combined GOES-R and JPSS virtual short course will focus on exercises that allow participants to access, process, and display GOES-R and JPSS data and products. The participants will receive instruction from satellite subject matter experts on how to use the products to analyze specific environmental scenarios such as severe convection, tropical storms, flooding, fire weather, air quality, and more.

"California Burning: Putting Federal Data to Work as a Strategic Asset"
GeoCollaborate was used to deliver multiple federal agency data in response to the August Wildfire complex in California in August 2020 in support of the CA National Guard and the CA Civil Air Patrol (CAP). NOAA HRRR smoke model data, JPSS and GOES satellite data, FAA Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFR), USFS NIFC Fire Perimeter, CA NG Damage Assessment Imaging Task Orders were shared in a trusted secure environment so the CA CAP could swoop in when the smoke was clearing to acquire damage assessment images. This just in time capability was delivered through the JPSS Fire & Smoke Initiative. StormCenter is funded under JPSS Fire & Smoke and River Ice & Flooding Initiatives to deliver NOAA data into decision making environments.
