REGIONAL AIR-SEA INTERACTION (RASI) GAP WIND AND COASTAL UPWELLING EVENTS CLIMATOLOGY GULF OF PANAMA, PANAMA V1

The Regional Air-Sea Interactions (RASI) Gap Wind and Coastal Upwelling Events Climatology Gulf of Panama, Panama dataset was created using an automated intelligent algorithm which identified gap wind and coastal ocean upwelling events using two satellite-based microwave datasets. The Cross-Calibrated Multi-Platform (CCMP) ocean surface wind data product was used for wind data while the Optimally Interpolated Sea Surface Temperatures (OISST) data product provided by Remote Sensing Systems was used for sea surface temperatures. Data is available from January 1, 1998 through December 31, 2011 for Gulf of Panama, Panama. The RASI datasets are products resulting from DISCOVER, a NASA MEaSUREs-funded project.
