Bandung (PSTA), on Tuesday (08/05/2018), 35 students of Mathematics Study Program of Universitas Negeri Jakarta (UNJ) along with a companion lecturer visited PSTA LAPAN to learn more about Science, Technology, and Atmospheric Modeling. The visit, held in the Atmospheric Science Meeting Room, was opened by the Head of Administration of PSTA, Sudirman, hoping that UNJ students can add new insights and knowledge related to atmospheric science and technology.

As usual, students are first introduced to the LAPAN institute in general as well as the main task and function (tupoksi) of each work unit (satker) in LAPAN. The exposure relating to LAPAN delays is delivered by Atep Radiana from the field of PSTA dissemination. It was explained that LAPAN has 4 deputies consisting of Deputy for Space and Atmospheric Science, Deputy for Aeronautics and Space Technology, and Deputy of Remote Sensing Division overseeing the research satker, as well as the Center for Aviation and Antariska Policy Studies that oversees administrative activities.

The Center for Atmospheric Science and Technology (PSTA) LAPAN is under the auspices of the Deputy for Space and Atmospheric Science. Where within the PSTA itself there are 5 research focus consisting of Maritime Atmosphere, Climate Change, Atmospheric Environment, Hydrometeorological Disaster Potential, and Atmospheric Technology. Each focus of this research has each 1 decision support system (DSS) in the form of SEMAR, SRIRAMA, SRIKANDI, SADEWA, and SANTANU. More details about the DSS are described during a visit to the Atmospheric Science and Technology Information System (ASTINA) room.

The second explanation related to the application of mathematical science and statistics to the research of atmospheric science and technology is presented by Trismidianto who is a researcher and member of PSTA dissemination field. Explained in detail and depth related to the application of atmospheric science that is meteorology, climatology, and oceanography in everyday life. Also explained the differences in weather and climate and how the rain can occur from the physical motion to dynamics.

The application of mathematical science to atmospheric science and technology research is delivered by Midi, in addition to calculating the chances of climate and climate phenomena, is also commonly used to make predictive models as well as testing satellite data calibration as well as tools to be used for atmospheric science observations. In this regard, mathematical science and statistics are also indispensable for analysis in atmospheric science and technology research.

The visit is very lively and interesting with many questions asked by UNJ students in the discussion session. Fundamental questions to the depth of exposure related to previous presenters, triggered UNJ student interest in science and atmospheric technology. Diksusi continued during the visit to the ASTINA room. Guided by Shailla Rustiana from PSTA dissemination field, students are invited to analyze and get to know atmospheric science and its application through DSS PSTA demo.

Students are familiar with DSS PSTA according to their tupio, SADEWA for observation of hydrometeorological disaster, SEMAR for maritime atmospheric observation, SRIKANDI for chemical observation and atmospheric composition, SRIRAMA for observation on climate change, and SANTANU for weather analysis based on radar observation. With the knowledge and experience gained during the visit in PSTA, UNJ students are becoming more knowledgeable and interested in conducting research related to atmospheric science and technology.
