End of Year Highlights 2017

December 18, 2017 | Eric Verbeten

A milestone year for satellite scientists, late 2017 saw the launch of the polar-orbiting satellite JPSS-1 while earlier in the year, routine data began streaming from its newest geostationary counterpart, GOES-16. In between these events, our scientists, engineers, and students continued to provide the people of Wisconsin, and around the world, with cutting-edge research on the Earth and its atmosphere.

Our selected highlights provide a window into our commitment to science through research, education, and public engagement. As 2017 comes to a close, we are looking forward to the opportunities that lie ahead.

Best wishes for a Happy New Year!

Steve Ackerman
Interim Director
