Please note: The 2018 CoRP Symposium will be held 6-7 June 2018 at the Pyle Center at the University of Wisconsin—Madison, hosted by the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies. The theme for this year's symposium will be "Moving NOAA Sciences into Decisions for Societal Benefit." Events will include 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 are available on the Accommodations link on the right; deadline for room reservations is listed.
Please be sure to register soon if you plan to attend. Once you enter your contact information, the Abstract submission form becomes available. Your confirmation email contains a unique link that allows you to edit your information and abstracts. The Draft Program is now available.
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:
- 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
