JPSS Science Training Resources

The JPSS Program is committed to ensuring that the satellite user community is prepared to make the most of the imagery and data available from JPSS satellites, the United States' polar-orbiting operational environmental satellite system. To that end, we present the following list of online resources to help users take full advantage of JPSS data.

Quick Briefs

Quick Briefs are satellite product application videos that are typically 3-5 minutes in duration.

Quick Guides

Quick guides are 1-2 page satellite product reference materials for users.
