Polar Satellite Meteorology and Climatology, Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies, SSEC, University of Wisconsin, Madison

Data Center Description
The Polar satellite Meteorology website provides information on products and
projects of the polar remote sensing and climatology group at the Cooperative
Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS), Space Science and
Engineering Center (SSEC), University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the NOAA/NESDIS
Advanced Satellite Product Team.

The Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) is a research and development
center with primary focus on geophysical research and technology to enhance
understanding of the atmosphere of Earth, the other planets in our Solar
System, and the cosmos. We sometimes explore the universe from space and
terrestrial-based telescopes, and probe other planets in our solar system, but
more often we examine the Earth to gain information and insight into weather,
climate, and other aspects of Earth's global environment. We develop new
observing tools for spacecraft, aircraft, and ground-based platforms, and we
model atmospheric phenomena. We receive, manage and distribute huge amounts of
geophysical data and develop software to visualize and manipulate these data
for use by researchers and operational meteorologists all over the world.
