Welcome to the Space Science and Engineering Center, part of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Graduate School. SSEC is a research and development center with primary focus on geophysical research and technology to enhance understanding of the atmosphere of Earth, the other planets in our Solar System, and the cosmos. We sometimes explore the universe from space and terrestrial-based telescopes, and probe other planets in our solar system, but more often we examine the Earth to gain information and insight into weather, climate, and other aspects of Earth's global environment. We develop new observing tools for spacecraft, aircraft, and ground-based platforms, and we model atmospheric phenomena. We receive, manage and distribute huge amounts of geophysical data and develop software to visualize and manipulate these data for use by researchers and operational meteorologists all over the world. #atmosphere #datacenter #engineering #geostationary #images #Madison #satellite #science #Space #SSEC #university #university_of_wisconsin #UW #UWMadison #Weather #wisconsin
