Ocean Acidification Indicators

CISESS Scientist Li-Qing Jiang has a new article that is a major step forward in the projections of ocean acidifcation indicators in the global ocean.

Seed Grant 1 Virtual Reality

Remote Streaming Virtual Reality

Guangyang Fang & Joseph Patton and two student interns have developed a remote streaming VR interface to view 100 years of 3D climate data on ENSO.

Seed Grant 2 Raspberry Pi

Lightning Camera Network

Daile Zhang has designed a new low-cost Raspberry Pi camera lightning monitor. With the help of her three student interns, she set up six sites in three states.

Seed Grant 3 Emulated Microwave

Passive Microwave Emulator

Veljko Petkovic and Malarvizhi Arulraj, with the help of PhD student, have developed a passive microwave emulator from ABI data using artificial intelligence/machine learning.

Seed Grant 4 Microwave Radiometer

Student-Built Microwave Radiometer

Hu Yang and Jun Dong helped five student interns build and test a microwave radiometer. This Seed Grant also funded the development of the new CISESS Remote Sensing Laboratory.

Director's Welcome

Hugo_retrato_(2016) How can we best exploit satellite information for improving weather and climate predictions? What is needed to create consistent long term records of satellite products for use in climate activities? What are the research needs to ensure we extract optimal information from future satellites sensors?

 These questions lie at the core of CISESS mission of supporting NOAA’s ability to use satellite observations and Earth System models to advance the national climate mission. Our people, research scientists and research engineers along with academic personnel, strive to make certain that our research is transferred to NOAA operations. We also believe in the need of developing and maintaining interactions with a broad community. Outreach, education, training, climate literacy activities are part of our vision for a successful return to society of the confidence they have entrusted us.
