Abstract

The sixth FORMOSAT-3/COSMIC Data Users' Workshop was held on October 30 and November 1, 2012 in Boulder, Colorado. The purpose of this workshop is to highlight accomplishments in the areas of global positioning system (GPS) radio occultation (RO) operations and algorithm development, meteorology, climate, and ionospheric applications using COSMIC data accessed from the COSMIC Data Analysis and Archive Center (CDAAC). Data processed by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) COSMIC Data Analysis and Archive Center (CDAAC) have been widely used by meteorology, climate, and ionospheric communities. The COSMIC-2 soundings will have better signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) than those of COSMIC, allowing profiles closer to Earth's surface and providing higher precision to extend existing applications and promote new ones for the weather, climate, and ionospheric communities.
