Multi-sensor Improved Sea-Surface Temperature (MISST)
Lead PI: Dr. Chelle Gentemann, Earth and Space Research
Start Year: 2011 | Duration: 5 Years
Partners: NOAA, University of Rhode Island, Naval Research Laboratory, University of Colorado, University of California Los Angeles, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, University of Utah, University of Miami, University of Maryland & Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO)
This project builds on the successful partnership developed for the Multi-sensor Improved Sea-Surface Temperature (MISST) for GODAE project (2004-2009). 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).
