Blog Site Description
CIMSS Satellite Blog

The intent of this web log is to showcase examples of some of the meteorological satellite images and products that are available to (or created by) scientists and researchers at NOAA CIMSS, located at the University of Wisconsin – Madison SSEC. Interesting and/or educational satellite images that are relevant to current weather events will be shown and discussed; if no significant or newsworthy weather events are happening elsewhere in the US, we will usually focus on satellite imagery over the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes regions.

Satellite Liaison Blog

This blog serves as a vehicle to demonstrate the current and future capabilities of the GOES-R and JPSS programs. The posts on this blog are made by Satellite Liaisons and NWS forecasters, and focus on the operational use of GOES-R and JPSS data.

GOES-R HWT Blog This blog includes posts by NWS forecasters and broadcast meteorologists participating in Hazardous Weather Testbed experiments. These posts highlight the use of new and experimental capabilities and products from GOES-16 and JPSS.

This blog has been developed by the VISIT and SHyMet programs at CIRA and under the direction of RAMMB of NOAA/NESDIS.  It is intended to open the doors of communication between the Operational, Academic and Training Meteorology communities.


The “Wide World of SPoRT” is a collaborative blog to facilitate dialog and an exchange of information on the real-time use of NASA data and research technologies to improve short-term weather forecasting.  The submission of content and comments by forecasters at NWS WFOs and other SPoRT end users is encouraged on topics that show the utility of NASA observations and research capabilities to address particular end user forecast problems. 

RAMMB: GOES-R Proving Ground Blog This blog by the RAMMB group highlights applications of Proving Ground products developed at CIRA.  These are generally experimental products that are being tested operationally at National Centers and NWS WFOs.
