On the use of Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites for studying fast-evolving atmospheric and climate
Posted on December 13, 2016 Most advanced remote sensing instruments are placed on Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites. Since they revisit a specific location on Earth anywhere between 2 and 12 hours, it is difficult to use LEO satellites to monitor or study fast-evolving phenomenon such as severe storms. Geostationary satellites (GEO) are better suited for capturing these fast processes but lack advanced instruments.

NOAA awards $11.9 million to four minority serving institutions to train the next generation of scientists
Posted on September 2, 2016 NOAA’s Office of Education announced $11.9 million in grants to four lead minority serving institutions across the country. The funds will be used to educate and graduate students who pursue degree programs with applied research in NOAA mission-related scientific fields. Awards were made to Florida A&M University, Howard University, City College of New York and the University of Maryland – Eastern Shore. These institutions partnered with 24 other schools to establish four cooperative science centers. The centers will train students in earth system sciences and remote sensing technology, coastal and marine ecosystems, living marine resources and atmospheric sciences & meteorology – all core science fields for NOAA.
