Assimilation of AIRS data by NOAA/NCEP and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). Use of AMSR-E water vapor and rain data by the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) in their meso-scale weather forecast model. Use of AMSR-E rainfall and brightness temperature data by the National Hurricane Center in their hurricane forecasts. Use of AMSR-E sea surface temperatures by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC; U.S. Navy and Air Force center for tracking typhoons in the Pacific and Indian Oceans) for tropical cyclone forecasting. Also, for forecast validation: Use of CERES data by ECMWF, UKMO, and NCEP for validation of the forecast models, in hindcast mode. Use of CERES data to verify the accuracy of the GEOS-3, -4, and -5 data assimilation models and to evaluate the performance of new "Super-parameterization" climate models. Use of MODIS cloud products for climate and forecast model validation by ECMWF and for cloud retrieval data assimilation research efforts at GMAO. Other Practical, Near-Real-Time Uses of Aqua Data:  Other Practical, Near-Real-Time Uses of Aqua Data Use of MODIS fire data by the U.S. Forest Service to assist them in most effectively deploying forest fighters. Use of MODIS dust data by the U.S. military in Iraq to monitor dust storms. Use of AMSR-E sea surface temperature data by the Japan Fisheries Information Service Center to assist fishermen in locating active fisheries. Use of AMSR-E data by the Dartmouth Flood Observatory in their detection and analysis of extreme flood events world-wide. Availability of AMSR-E browse Ocean products within a few hours to two days of data collection, at http://www.ssmi.com/amsr/amsr_browse.html (Frank Wentz products). Production of global precipitation maps from SSM/I, TMI, and AMSR-E by the near-real-time NOAA office at GSFC. Production of a "Flash Flux" near real time version of the CERES data products by NASA Langley, with the purpose of providing improved input on surface radiative fluxes for ocean assimilation in short term climate prediction.
