The objectives of this project are to (1) improve and continue generation of satellite SST data and SST analyses in the IOOS DMAC and CF-compliant Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) Data Specification GDS format; (2) distribute and archive these data; and (3) use this improved SST data in applications, many specifically targeted for the Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS).



MISST, Future objectives 2017-2022

Our primary objective is to relate changes in Arctic heat, gas, and momentum fluxes to impacts on weather and climate.  A key observation to address this objective is to improve accuracy and estimates of sea surface temperature in the Arctic.
