Several scientists at the ESSIC-administered Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites-Maryland (Steve Lord, Isaac Moradi, Christopher Hain, Eugenia Kalnay, Sean P.F. Casey, Jianjun Xu, Jicheng Liu, Li Fang, and Tse-Chun Chen) have coauthored an article accepted for publication in the Bulletin of American Meteorological Society.
The article explores how the the establishment of an efficient supercomputer-based Operations-To-Research (O2R) environment–for Satellite Simulations and data assimilation Studies (S4)–might improve the linkage between NOAA's operational systems and its research efforts.
