The SPoRT Center produces online surveys for several products in support of SPoRT's research and transition to operations. Surveys provide a quick and easy method for SPoRT to determine the effectiveness of the products transitioned. SPoRT prides itself on not "throwing data over the fence" by continuing to support our National Weather Service partners even after a product has been transitioned, and the surveys provide a means for interaction between SPoRT researchers and operational meteorologists. Each of the surveys below provides links to the survey itself, a summary of all surveys for a particular product, and the online training modules for the product being surveyed. View survey results.
