New RPC Submissions
Models and data that are proposed for acceptance into the RPC are evaluated against standard yet flexible criteria. All models and data must demonstrate relevance to SWPC operations and reliable, valid, and usable output. To be accepted, the model or data must offer value to SWPC and to the customers that will exceed the cost to transition and operate the model or data stream. SWPC will provide general information about the data and models currently in operation and about SWPC's perceived future needs. In addition, prior to acceptance into the RPC, the model/data provider will, together with the SWPC staff, document the expected final product and, where applicable, the intermediate stages in the model development that will take place during the transition to operational use. The model/data provider will also provide a completed questionnaire that will allow SWPC to evaluate the models suitability for SWPC.
The final decision on acceptance or non-acceptance will be made by SWPC management based on recommendation from the RPC Team. Membership in the RPC Team is flexible but at a minimum includes representatives from the SWPC Systems, Operations, and Research Divisions. Team members may also come from organizations or institutions outside of SWPC. The basic acceptance requirements and anticipated stages of the RPC process are outlined in the RPC Process section.
This questionnaire is intended to begin the dialogue to determine how your model might fit into space weather operations at the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center. Please provide brief answers to the following questions:
