    1. Transitioning Capabilities between NASA Research and NOAA Operations Presentation to CIOSS Executive Board Meeting Aug 30, 2005 (rev 25)

    2. 2 Background The transition between NASA research and NOAA operations has been identified as a national issue: Reports of the National Research Council Recommendations from the Commission on Ocean Policy This is being addressed in two ways: Near-Term Senate language in the NOAA FY05 budget for NOAA: Provide NOAA the capability to transition NASA remote sensed ocean measurements into operational products for the user community Observations explicitly mentioned: ocean winds from scatterometers,sea levelfrom altimeters, andocean color This is a one-year $4M level of effort, with no assurance for continuation Longer-Term The establishment of a more formal process process between the two agencies to facilitate the transitioning

    3. 3 Near-Term Approach Prepare an FY05 Implementation Plan for a Research & Operations Program and show early results for the $4M Development of plan initiated in January 2005 Plan approved by Jack Kelly on April 1, 2005 Elements of plan were to have been funded and underway Link the elements of the Research & Operations Program to NOAA Goals and engage in the FY08 budget process

    4. 4 Surface Vector Winds Objective Identify the most appropriate path for NOAA to collect operational surface vector winds (SVW) Status NASA QuikSCAT data have been used operationally by NWS for 3+ years Post-QuikSCAT SVW are to be provided by NPOESS/CMIS, but its performance is predicated on an evaluation of WindSat Identified Tasks Ensure timely access by NWS to WindSat SVW to enable user evaluation Refine QuikSCAT products rain & spatial resolution Overall Issue To the extent that CMIS is inadequate, explore options for flight of a a scatterometer to follow QuikSCAT
