IN044:
Near Real Time/Low Latency Data for Earth Science and Space Weather Applications





Session ID#: 23108

Session Description:
Near real time/low latency data from satellite, airborne (including aircraft and uninhabited aerial vehicles-UAV), and surface sensors are transforming existing end-user applications and spawning new ones. These applications demonstrate the utility of timely data in diverse Earth and space science disciplines including weather prediction, river forecasting, natural and human-caused hazards, public health, agriculture, marine, early warning, and space weather applications. In addition to traditional computer analyses, the use of apps for smartphones and tablets presents an opportunity to improve and expand the timely usage of data products and services. This session seeks contributions that demonstrate the benefit of near real time/low latency scientific or social media data, discuss innovative real time analysis approaches, decrease data delivery latency, or identify gaps in current capabilities.
