Welcome to the GSICS Wiki

This wiki is a place of collaboration for those involved with the Global Space-based Inter-Calibration System ( GSICS). GSICS is a W.M.O.-sponsored international cooperation to harmonize the calibration of the data from operational weather satellites in order to improve weather forecasting and climate monitoring.


Primarily this Wiki is used as a repository for presentations from the annual and web meetings of the GSICS Research and Data Working Group, as well as User Workshops.

...GSICS Coordination Center

Connecting with Users and other interest groups

The GSICS Coordination Center requests feedbacks from interest groups such as Users of GSICS Products, From Friends such as GRUAN, GHRSST, SCOPE-CM, From Agencies. It is envisaged that feedbacks from these groups help us tune better to their needs.

So far we have focused on getting feedbacks from our Users. This page provides a list of feedbacks that we have received and we plan to receive.

Colab notebooks offer Python environment where a Python program reads , processes and visualizes the data.
  • Process GSICS RAC Products ( see here )
  • Process GSICS NRT Products ( see here )
  • GSICS Deliverables (GIRO SRF, GMX inter-cal tables (Google Colab) and Reference Radiance ( Google Colab )
  • Solar Data Sets ( Notebook, vizualizes several Solar Data Sets and compares them see here )
  • State of Observing System ( Colab file)
Want to create a Colab Notebook, contact GSICS Data Working Group/ GSICS Coordination Center ( manik(d0t) bali(AT)N O A A ( dot ) gov )
