Mission Statement

The “Wide World of SPoRT” is a collaborative blog to facilitate dialog and an exchange of information on the real-time use of NASA data and research technologies to improve short-term weather forecasting.  The submission of content and comments by forecasters at National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) and other SPoRT end users is encouraged on topics that show the utility of NASA observations and research capabilities to address particular end user forecast problems.

Relevant data and capabilities include:

VIIRS, MODIS, AIRS, and GOES products provided by SPoRT, total lightning data from the North Alabama Lightning Mapping Array (NALMA) and other total lightning detection networks, the SPoRT Land Information System (LIS), and WRF model products using unique NASA/SPoRT data and capabilities.

The “Wide World of SPoRT” is viewable by the public, but submission of content and comments are limited to registered SPoRT end users.
