When it comes to extreme weather, commercial,

federal, state and local agencies need all

the fast and reliable data they can get to

make the best decisions with things are uncertain.

Bass: Weather is responsible for more traffic delays,

delays and diversions than any other reason.

So that satellite data and the tools they

provide help the traffic flow managers in

both the FAA and for the airlines to gain

a better understanding of those hazards are,

where they're at, and what they're forecast

to be so we can either mitigate them or just

work around them. From the vantage point from

space, NASA and partner satellites provide

critical information to aviation, shipping,

state transportation departments and logistics

industries. NASA's cutting-edge technology

brings unprecedented views of the Earth, giving

us a closer look inside cloud systems, lightning,

dangerous storms, severe weather over land

and far offshore, beyond what traditional

radars can observe. Warrillow: We are a met ocean data

analytics company, and we do numerical modeling

to describe the ocean in four dimensions.

He: We have this numerical prediction capabilities

to essentially tell people, the users,

the ocean conditions, the currents, temperature,

waves, and so on and so forth in any part

of the globe ocean. The information gathered

by satellites can help decision makers adapt

to quickly changing situations and make travel

and transport safer and more efficient. NASA

is creating awareness of precipitation and

cloud data to help inform critical operation

decisions today and into the future.
