GOES NOP Issues/Updates

  • Lband frequency sale may make it impossible to get NOP data from the satellite
    • Sale expected 2014 but noise not expected to be significant for 10 years
    • Brent believes SWPC can get the data directly from NSOF
  • Tom DeFoor leaving June 2013
  • SEM particles
    • 2010-Coefficient update needed for the proton correction to 2MeV electrons
    • 3/2011 Error bars needed on EPEAD electrons to show when the data is bad due to proton contamination
      • Algorithm has been developed and implemented but new release has not been issued
    • 2/2103 Time stamp prior to 2008 is off
      • SWPC will check what changes occurred on that day to understand the nature of the problem
      • Good time tags may exist in the SWPC database
  • MAG
  • XRS
  • SXI

DSCOVR Issues/Updates

  • Expected launch Nov 2014
  • 2/2013 Developer hired
  • Sunjammer might be on same launch vehicle
  • Orbit is different from ACE
    • German satation will not see parts of orbit and may cause 8 hour gaps
    • can possibly be mitigated by phasing of the orbit
    • Other ground stations are being considered
  • System Requirements Review April 10
  • OSTP has declared that NASA be responsible for climate sensors

POES/MetOp Issues/Updates

  • 1/2013 SWPC discontinued processing 1/2013-will likely not resume
    • NGDC processing should begin 03/2013 but will not include hemi power or belt indices
  • 3/20/2013 NOAA 17 will be discontinued due to solar power control issues
  • 3/26/2013 Dual MetOp meeting
  • 2/26-3/07 NOAA 17 gyroless test


  • Important Dates
    • Science Week March 18-22 (abstracts Feb 22)
    • NOAA Satellite meeting April (abstract submitted)
  • Lband sell off
    • may make GRB unusable
    • PDA won't be available from the remote back up unit (RBU. If there is no GRB then no data will be available during these time
  • Class will not archive L0 data
