The system is based on GSI for data assimilation and WRF for forecast. Data assimilated include both conventional and satellite observations. Satellite data include AMSUA (N15, N18, N19, metop-a, aqua), ATMS (Suomi-NPP), HIRS4 (N19, metop-a), AIRS (aqua), IASI (metop-a), and MHS (N18, N19, metop-a).
Funding is provided by JPSS, GOES-R, JCSDA through the cooperative agreement between NOAA and UW-Madion.
Supercomputing is conducted at NOAA/NESDIS-funded Supercomputer for Satellite Simulations and Data Assimilation Studies (S4) located at UW-Madison's Space Science Engineering Center (SSEC).
