The Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies supports a modeling group whose mission is to investigate the impact of satellite data on numerical forecast quality. Our current efforts are focused on three major projects:


  • CIMSS Regional Assimilation System (CRAS) daily forecast products

  • Eta Data Assimilation System (EDAS) Test and Evaluation

  • Observing System Simulation Experiments (OSSE)

  • Isentropic Trajectory Analysis Project (ITAP)
