Bandung / PSTA LAPAN (12/10/2018), Two scientists from the United States namely Allen Huang from the Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC), the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Mitch Goldberg from the Joint Polar Satellite System Program, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - National Aeronautics and Space Administration (JPSS, NOAA-NASA) provides lectures related to the use of satellite data and weather models for atmospheric science and technology observations on PSTA.

The Head of PSTA, Halimurrahman said, the lecture from the world's leading scientists is an award for PSTA. It is expected that the results of the lecture given can be beneficial for the development of each research study in the PSTA, especially the use of satellite data to observe the potential of hydrometeorological disasters.

Allen Huang and Mitch Goldberg were also grateful for the warm welcome from PSTA, and hoped that after this event there would be ongoing cooperation for PSTA and NOAA to collaborate research, especially in the utilization of satellite data. The lecture given by Allen Huang consists of 3 materials, namely related to SSEC Real Time Data Processing; TempoQuest (software suitable for weather forecasting designed to run on NVIDIA, graphics processor units (GPUs) (in this software, WRF model acceleration is carried out on the GPU), and an explanation of software developed related to meteorological and climatological satellites along with application recognition SSEC real earth.

Mitch Goldberg gave lectures related to mission and instruments from JPSS, including: Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS), Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES), Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS), Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS) and Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS). Also shown is research on satellite observations to detect forest fires and floods that occur in Indonesia. This explains that NOAA satellites can be useful for the research being carried out by PSTA.

The research conducted by Allen Huang and Mitch Goldberg is interrelated with each other. The existence of a research collaboration between SSEC and JPSS called Advanced Satellite Products Branch (ASPB), provides information related to cloud and radiation observations, discussions related to weather forecasting, air quality analysis, instrumentation (GOES-R, MODIS), assimilation data, geostationary real time satellites ( including research related to humidity, stability, ozone, and wind), real-time polar-orbit satellites, and several joint trainings.

In the last session of the lecture, the Head of PSTA delivered a glimpse of the application developed by PSTA which also uses satellite data as an observation, namely SADEWA. SADEWA uses observations of Himawari and GSMaP satellite data from Japan to analyze hydrometeorological disasters in Indonesia. PSTA initiated to use satellite data from NOAA for research and development (R & D) in PSTA, if the realization of research collaboration between PSTA and NOAA.

The results of the lecture provide a new understanding for researchers and engineers in PSTA, considering that the PSTA R & D activities cannot be separated from the use of satellite data for their observations, both for weather observation and air quality. Questions and input submitted in the discussion session made the atmosphere of the lecture more lively and interesting. The hope is that this discussion will continue in research collaboration to improve the quality of PSTA R & D.
