Abstract:

The long-term goal is to ensure that Navy capabilities for a new generation of sea surface temperature products are coordinated with and benefitting from international research and development embodied by the Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature SST GHRSST and domestic capabilities demonstrated in the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System IOOS regions and applicable to regions around the world. This project is the Navy component of a broad national NOPPIOOSNASA MISST for IOOS project led by Chelle Gentemann. The Navy Participants under the ONR funding are Charlie Barron NRL, James Cumming NRL, Bruce McKenzie NAVOCEANO, and Doug May NAVOCEANO. The overarching objectives in MISST for IOOS are to continue producing GHRSST compliant satellite SSTs from existing and new sensors and to produce multi-sensor blended gap-free SSTs from US and international GHRSST datasets. The objectives of the Navy component are to coordinate Navy research and development with GHRSST through complementary tasks and interaction at the annual meetings, use of GHRSST data sets for assimilation and validation, and intercomparison of Navy and other GHRSST products.
