Paper Abstract

GEONETCast Americas is a regional contribution to a developing, global, near-real-time, environmental data dissemination system in support of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems. It will be a contribution from the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration whose goal is to enable enhanced dissemination, application, and exploitation of environmental data and products for the diverse societal benefits defined by the Group on Earth Observations, including agriculture, energy, health, climate, weather, disaster mitigation, biodiversity, water resources, and ecosystems. GEONETCast Americas will serve North, Central, and South Americas beginning late in 2007 using inexpensive satellite receiver stations based on Digital Video Broadcast standards and will link with similar regional environmental data dissemination systems deployed around the world.
