Unidata to Launch Observational Satellite

GOES-16 image
Satellite images are really cool.

Following on the heels of NOAA's successful launch of the GOES-16 Earth observing satellite in November 2016, Unidata is moving ahead with plans to launch its own orbiter early next year. Unlike GOES-16, which provides a wide variety of observations including rapidly refreshing a full-disk imagery of the Western hemisphere, the first Geostationary Unidata Observing Satellite (GUOS-1) will focus its instruments on observations of the area immediately surrounding the Unidata Program Center in Boulder, Colorado.

Unidata Program Center Welcomes John Leeman

John Leeman

John Leeman joined the Unidata Program Center software development team on January 30th, 2017. John obtained bachelor's degrees in meteorology and geophysics from the University of Oklahoma in 2012, and a PhD in geoscience from Penn State in 2017. He has worked in research fields ranging from gas hydrate thermodynamics to SODAR and boundary layer instrumentation, and did his doctoral work in earthquake physics. John's software development experience includes work on the seafloor process simulator at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and telemetry analysis tools for NASA's Morpheus lunar lander project. The common thread amongst all of these projects was “the development of new tools and software to attack previously intractable problems.”

As a researcher himself, John brings first-hand knowledge of how scientists want to interact with their research tools to Unidata. He joined the Unidata Program Center because, he says, “making well tested and reliable tools with which to conduct reproducible science is probably the largest challenge and most needed area of innovation in research today.”

AMS 2017 Conference Highlights from the Unidata Staff

AMS Student Career Fair

This year's annual American Meteorological Society meeting, was held January 22-26 in Seattle, Washington. We were happy to see many of the Unidata community members participating in the meeting at our booth in the exhibit hall, and to meet so many prospective community members at the AMS Student Conference.

With so much going on at the conference, we can't cover everything here. Instead, we present some highlights as recalled by UPC staff members who attended.

Farewell to Communications Intern Larissa Gordon

Larissa Gordon

Larissa Gordon, who has been with us at the Unidata Program Center as a Communications Intern since March 14th, 2016, is reaching the end of her internship; her last day at the UPC will be September 30th. While Unidata has had student interns working on software development projects for several years, Larissa is our first Communications Intern. In that role, she has assisted with a variety of Unidata projects. Most notably, Larissa worked with Unidata community members to document the data management workflows they used in their research projects. Her efforts have greatly enhanced the “Scenarios and Use Cases” section of Unidata's Data Management Resource Center (DRMC).

We've been glad to have Larissa working with us over the course of her internship, and we wish her continued success in her endeavors!
