Environmental Intelligence:
NOAA Products and Services Support To the Public’s Decision-making
???????Environmental decisions can impact lives, property and segments of the economy for years.
Environmental intelligence includes weather warnings or forecasts, tsunami and flood alerts, space weather, fire and drought reports and predictions, ice monitoring or harmful algal bloom assessments.
Critical information is tied to observations, modeling and computer resources.
Decision support tools are essential to effectively convey information.

??JPSS Overview
??Benefits
Ensures continuity of global weather observations and critical environmental data around the world
Delivers real-time data to the National Weather Service, improving the quality of forecasts and enabling improved consistency in public warnings 3 to 7 days in advance of a severe weather event
Provides critical monitoring for hurricanes, droughts, floods, snowstorms and other severe weather events, allowing for the time to protect lives and property through evacuations and other preparations
Advances weather, climate, environmental and oceanographic science through technological improvements in satellite instruments and capabilities over legacy NOAA satellites
???????????Launch Commitment Dates
No later than 2Q FY 2017 (JPSS-1); 1Q FY 2022 (JPSS-2)
Program Architecture
3 Satellites (Suomi NPP, JPSS-1, JPSS-2) Suomi NPP – 5 year operational design life;
JPSS-1 – 7 year operational design life

?????
????GOES-R Series Overview
??Benefits
Maintains continuity of weather observations and critical environmental data from geostationary orbit
Provides faster scanning of entire hemisphere while simultaneously observing individual storms, improving hurricane tracking, aviation flight route planning, air quality warnings and fire detection
Provides a new lightning mapping capability for improved warning lead time for severe storms and tornadoes, allowing time to protect lives and property
Provides improved warning of solar events to minimize impact to communications, navigation systems, power grids and satellites in orbit

?National Center for Environmental Information
NOAA’s National Center for Environmental Information (NCEI) provides long-term preservation, management, data stewardship and ready accessibility to the world’s largest source of oceanographic, geophysical, solar- terrestrial and climatic data
NESDIS operates NOAA’s Central and Regional library system to support NOAA’s scientific/technical personnel. More than weather, NESDIS is the loci for integration of data from various sources to address complex environmental challenges, e.g., Gulf of Mexico “dead zone,” long-term polar ice trends, drought monitoring.
