NOAA-NASA Satellite Meteorology Summer School

Colorado State University

The NOAA National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) and the NASA Earth Sciences Division are pleased to announce a Satellite Meteorology Summer School on the theory and use of Satellite Data to engage graduate students and individuals with early postdoctoral appointments in the science of developing and using satellite data for the atmosphere, land, oceans, and cryosphere. The program will include internationally recognized experts in radiative transfer theory, satellite meteorology, numerical weather prediction at both the global scale and mesoscale, along with opportunities for students to interact with the lecturers in an informal setting. The objective of the program is to foster the education of the next generation of satellite meteorologists and promote the use of observations from the latest operational and research satellite missions.

NASA Launches Earth Science Challenges with OpenNEX Cloud Data

NASA

The NASA Earth Exchange (NEX), in collaboration with Amazon Web Services Inc. and Innocentive, had announced the OpenNEX challenge and workshop. They invite the general public, climate scientists, software engineers, and data analysts to design and implement concepts that enable climate resilience. There will be $60,000 in prize money available for participants as a reward for their innovations.

The first stage of the challenge runs July 1 through August 1, 2014, and offers as much as $10,000 in awards for ideas on novel uses of the large collection of climate and Earth science satellite data sets — including global land surface images, vegetation conditions, climate observations, and climate projections — that are being made available to participants. The second stage, beginning in August, will offer between $30,000 and $50,000 in awards for the development of an application or algorithm that promotes climate resilience using the OpenNEX data, based on ideas from the first stage of the challenge. NASA will announce the overall challenge winners in December.
