PODAAC-NAVOC-2FRAC

Version 1
  • Abstract
    This data now includes a 2.2 km product using both the global Fine Resolution Area (FRAC) coverage from the METOP-A satellite and coastal Local Area Coverage (LAC) from NOAA 16, 17 and 19 satellites. Both products employ High Resolution Picture Transmission (HRPT) SST calculations. LAC coverage includes both the East and West Coasts of the United States, the Mediterranean, and parts of the Indian Ccean and the Australian Coasts, while the FRAC is global. High quality Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) maps derived from the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration)-Polar Orbiting Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) have been available since 1981. The multichannel sea surface temperature algorithm (MCSST) has been used to routinely calculate SSTs using a split window approach. Currently this algorithm is applied by the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO) to calculate SSTs at a near real-time rate.
