Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS)

Cooperative Institute for Meteorological satellite Studies (CIMSS) is a Cooperative Institute formed through a Memorandum of Understanding between the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in 1980.

The CIMSS provides near real-time imagery, derived atmospheric analysis products, and tropical cyclone (TC) intensity estimates from a variety of different satellite platforms for global analysis of TCs and their surrounding environments. Many of the products from CIMSS are developed specifically for use by TC forecasters worldwide to provide unique information in support of their specific TC forecasting missions.

The CIMSS Tropical Cyclone group does not produce forecasts or warnings for any TCs, instead it provides unique information to the organizations and forecasters who do. Read more
