      Abstract: The sea surface temperature (SST) products were derived from NOAA's Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellites (POES) for the coastal United States. They were created by NOAA CoastWatch Program and are now only available through this website. CoastWatch started with only POES/AVHRR SST data for the East Coast, but later added more regional nodes of Alaska, Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, Hawaii, Great Lakes, Northeast, Southeast and West Coast. The products provided here are in the original CoastWatch Format, which does not apply to the SST data currently created. The new data is now provided in HDF format, which is also available through this web site.

      Platform:
      • ORBVIEW-2 > Orbital Sciences Corporation OrbView-2 Satellite
      Instrument:
        SEAWIFS > Sea-Viewing Wide Field-of-View Sensor
      Format Name:
      • HDF
      Abstract: This data set consists of satellite measurements of global and regional ocean color data obtained by the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWIFS), in orbit on the OrbView-2 (formerly SeaStar) platform. The concentration and predominant identity of substances and particles in the euphotic (lighted) zone of the upper ocean influences the apparent color of the ocean, which can range from deep blue to varying shades of green and ruddy brown. Living phytoplankton (which contain chlorophyll and associated photosynthetic pigments), inorganic sediments, detritus (particulate organic matter) and dissolved organic matter all contribute to the color of the ocean. SeaWiFS acquires approximately 15 pole-to-pole orbital swaths of data per day, and approximately 90% of the ocean surface is scanned every two days. The file's content consists of raw radiance counts from eight bands (six in visible and two in near infrared spectrum), calibration data, navigation data, instrument telemetry and selected spacecraft telemetry.While level 2 historic data is open to the public, level 1 data is restricted to users covered by SeaWIFS CoastWatch contract due to limitations associated with commercial data. Users may find instructions on how to become registered users with SeaWIFS at http://coastwatch.noaa.gov/cw_faq.html#ocean%20color.

      Format Name:
      • netCDF
      Abstract: NOAA CoastWatch produces global maps that illustrate the presence or absence of blooms of the sentinel coccolithophorid species Emiliania huxleyi (a calcite-producing single-celled algae) and maps of the resulting calcite concentration. This species is used to study ocean acidification and its effects on marine ecosystems. Various ecologically important parameters, such as bloom timing and areal extent, may be estimated from these maps.

      Abstract: NOAA CoastWatch produces near real-time ocean color products, e.g. chlorophyll-a concentration and turbidity (reflectance), with data from NASA's GeoEye's Orbview-2 satellite (via contractual purchase). The data is collected by selected HRPT ground stations.The level 1A data consists of raw radiance counts from eight bands (six in visible and two in near infrared spectrum), calibration data, navigation data, instrument telemetry and selected spacecraft telemetry. Each level 2 satellite specific product has unique characteristics dependent on the sensor and the algorithm applied. While level 2 historic data is open to the public, level 1 data is restricted to users covered by SeaWIFS CoastWatch contract due to limitations associated with commercial data.
