The first METOP launch is planned for about 2002. It is anticipated that the NOAA POES spacecraft (through-N and-N') and METOP will provide coverage for NOAA until the new NPOESS is operational (see Table 4-4). The need and timing for “gap-fillers” in case of a delay in NPOESS (including METOP) depend on the availability factors discussed here and on the launch-decision process. It should be noted that the DMSP spacecraft can provide only a limited level of backup to the POES (see p. 36). Finding 3.

The launch schedule for NOAA-M is based on successful conclusion of the European agreement. S. ” In response to this directive, an Integrated Program Office was established within NOAA on October 3, 1994. This office is staffed with DOD, NASA, and NOAA personnel.

By international convention, radiosondes are released near 0000 and 1200 GMT each day. The combination of satellite data and radiosonde data is the principal source of data for the primary synoptic analysis periods. Satellite data coverage of data-sparse (no radiosonde data) regions of the world (oceans, southern hemisphere, and polar regions) is critical to the proper analysis of the atmosphere, which in turn forms the basis of the 24-hour to 5-day numerical forecasts of global and regional weather.
