NOAA GPRC mission

Mission of NOAA GPRC

The Global Space-based Inter-Calibration System (GSICS), initiated by the World Meteorological Organization(WMO)and the Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites(CGMS), aims to produce consistent, well-calibrated measurements from the international constellation of operational meteorological satellites. GSICS is organized to have several Processing and Research Centers (GPRC).

At NOAA GPRC, we conduct GSICS-related processing and research to ensure the quality of radiance measured by NOAA satellites. Our methodology is described in the Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document. Our primary products are GSICS Monitoring that displays the bias in various ways, and GSICS Correction that provides coefficients to make the GOES measurements consistent with reference instrument.

As a service to the GSICS community through GSICS Coordination Center(GCC), we also conduct GSICS processing for international satellite instruments using the GSICS baseline algorithm.
