The 2012 NOAA Satellite Science Week was held April 30 – May 4, 2012 at the National Weather Service Training Center in Kansas City, MO. Science Week is a joint meeting and review of the GOES-R Algorithm Working Group, the GOES-R and JPSS Proving Grounds and Risk Reduction Science activities, and satellite training. The goal is to promote interchange between product developers and the user communities, ensuring a path for the transition of research to operations and user readiness.
