CIMSS: The Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies

The Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) is composed of scientists from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and NASA who "conduct research using passive remote sensing systems for meteorological and surface-based applications." Visitors can discover the many operational and research satellites as well as the ground based and airborne sensors. At the MODIS and GOES galleries, users can view numerous satellite images of landscapes and disasters across the Western Hemisphere. Students and teachers can discover scholarship opportunities, educational applets, and tutorials. Researchers can learn about CIMSS's weather predication model and many projects such as the Coastal Louisiana Geomorphology and Daily Solar Insolation.
