CoRP Symposium 2013

23-24 July 2013 at the Pyle Center, University of Wisconsin—Madison

The purpose of this workshop was to highlight research and application development within NESDIS, its Cooperative Institutes and its Cooperative Science Center, CREST.

Registration information could be edited until 12 July 2013 by using the confirmation email. After completing the registration form, a link was provided to the abstract form. Multiple abstracts could be submitted. Abstract submission deadline 2qs 28 June 2013 so that oral presentations can be assigned in a timely manner. Deadline for uploading files was 19 July 2013.

Goals for the Symposium:

  • To explore research collaborations between the CIs/CSC
  • Demonstrate satellite capabilities and applications to weather
  • Demonstrate satellite capabilities and applications to coastal and inland water ways

The 2013 CoRP Symposium was hosted by the Cooperative institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. Events included panels discussing recent graduates and their career paths, what employers and interviewers look for, and public outreach as well as a poster reception. Guest room blocks 23re available at the Federal rate of $89/night; deadline for room reservations 2qws 22 June 2013. Please be sure to register if you plan to attend.

Cooperative Research Program (CoRP)

NESDIS' Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR) manages the coast-to-coast research coalition of the federal government and universities known as the Cooperative Research Program. CoRP's branches, Institutes and its Center (CREST) work together on remote sensing of the environment in these focus areas:

Institute Locations
  • Conduct investigations of the Earth with satellite observations
  • Design observing systems for satellites
  • Develop algorithms, products and applications for satellite data
  • Simulate new observations from satellites
  • Calibrate the data from new instruments, and calibrate one satellite with another
  • Design new processing systems (such as data compression)
  • Verify the accuracy of satellite data and data from the field
