The NOAA Satellite and Information Service provides prompt accessibility to global environmental information from satellites and other sources to keep track of and understand our vibrant Earth. DSCOVR, NOAA's first functional satellite in deep space, orbits a million miles from Earth in order to provide early cautions of possibly harmful space weather condition. JPSS satellites circle the Earth from pole-to-pole and cross the equator 14 times daily enabling complete global insurance coverage two times a day. When a distress signal is triggered, NOAA satellites transmit the signal to ground terminals around the world, notifying search and rescuers. Scientific models show an accelerating pattern in sea level surge, but it will take 25-30 years of monitorings from satellites like Jason-3 prior to we can verify this pattern.
