MARACOOS receives satellite data from the NOAA, NASA and EUMETSAT agencies. The global operational weather satellite system is composed of two types of satellites: geostationary operational environmental satellites (GOES) for short-range warning and “now-casting” and polar-orbiting satellites for longer-term forecasting. Both types of satellite are necessary for providing a complete global weather monitoring system.
Recently the University of Delaware satellite receiving station sent Mid-Atlantic data to NASA to supplement data gaps due to a technical issue with one of the polar orbiting satellites.
The MARACOOS satellite team works to serve over 35 near-real time products.
