SuomiNet has been successful at new implementations of the LDM software and IDD topology. SuomiNet has allowed the UPC to
explore cross discipline research with our involvement with the GPS community. The SuomiNet project has been successful in
displaying near real-time data via the web allowing a larger community to have access to these data visualizations. Now in
its mature stage, SuomiNet, has allowed the UPC to explore new uses of the LDM/IDD technology with success and venture into
near real-time web data display. The web display has been widely used by the community and incorporated into many
presentations and publications.
A netCDF to GEMPAK decoder for visualization of data via GEMPAK/GARP has been completed
LDM/IDD Software is being applied to gather the raw data from each site
LDM/IDD Software also applied to distribute post-processing PWV/TEC products to the community
Water Vapor Products Currently Available:
SuomiNet main page that contains the UNIDATA LDM/IDD GEMPAK 14 hour loops of PWV with an 8km IR Super-National overlay, and archived historical products from these loops.
There are two loops, one that filters out sites (no overlap) for ease of viewing, and another that includes ALL sites and can be zoomed in for ease of viewing. Both these products are combining SuomiNet sensors with sensors of other agencies, giving a total of 125 reporting locations.
--http://www.gst.ucar.edu/gpsrg/realtime (NOAA, USGC, and DOT) and description of process and comparison of US products of Total Electron Content and Integrated Precipitable Water(IPW) compared with GOES imagery. This site also contains archived loops of the IHOP field campaign, ionospheric TEC, MPEG animations, and other products.
A map of ALL active SuomiNet sites is available for point and click access to the data products derived from that site.
