Operational speci cations of space environmental hazards can be an important input used by
decision makers. Ideally the speci cation would come from onboard sensors, but for satellites
where that capability is not available another option is to map data from remote observations to
the location of the satellite. Here we present a model for mapping GOES observations to Lower
Earth Orbits and examine its accuracy against observations from the Proton Telescope (PROTEL)
instrument on board the Combined Release and Radiation Eff ects Satellite (CRRES).
