Data Center Description
The Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) , part of the University of
Wisconsin-Madison's Graduate School 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. They 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. They develop new observing tools
for spacecraft, aircraft, and ground-based platforms, and we model atmospheric
phenomena. They 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.
