The authors would like to thank the following three programs for their partial supports to this study: NOAA NESDIS GOES-R Risk Reduction Program (GOES-R3), NOAA NESDIS JPSS
Proving Ground and Risk Reduction Program (JPSS
PGRR), and NOAA Climate Program Office Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) program.
Joint problem-solving spaces (JPSS
) are constructed through interaction as group members set goals, define and redefine problems, and propose actions to solve them (Barron, 2000).

satellite before the next one could be launched, there backup plan would have to rely on China for especially imagery for our weather information.
