1 Overview of MDL Course: Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products Murray Brown MarineDataLiteracy.org

2 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products Operational Oceanography The activity of systematic and long-term routine measurements of the seas and oceans and atmosphere, and their rapid interpretation and dissemination [EUROGOOS] Observations; transmission; quality control; packaging; synthesis/assimilation; modeling; novel & standard products; publication

3 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 1. Pre-course Reading Before you take this course, you must do a little pre-course reading Just a few short articles

4 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 2. Integration of Resources A few introductory talks by the instructor – formats, datasets, software

5 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 3. Software & System Considerations Due to complex content and student numbers, strict oversight of course materials is required, to simplify problem resolution

6 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 4. Wind & Wave Products

7 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 4, continued Global & regional wave heights, from best- available models

8 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 4, continued Modelled or satellite-measured wind fields

9 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 4, continued Very rapid access to current wave measurements from satellites

10 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 5. Satellite Data for Scalars

11 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 5, continued Multiple sources of hi-res SST

12 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 5, continued Surface chlorophyll, even at daily frequency Here coastal Liberia

13 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 5, continued Sea surface salinity products are now operational

14 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 5, continued Several available sea ice products available daily

15 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 5, continued Estimates of geostrophic currents from sea surface height

16 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 5, continued Rapid response, high-resolution visual imagery of selected regions

17 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 5, continued Ambitious new L4 primary production products based on multiple sensors

18 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 6. Drifters (Argo) and Buoys (GDP)

19 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 6, continued Constant data transmissions from drifters, easily added to data collections

20 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 6, continued Meso-scale feature monitoring with NRT buoy trajectories

21 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 7. Ocean Model Products

22 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 7, continued All principal scalars, and current vectors…many levels

23 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products 8. Google Earth Visualizations

24 Survey of Operational Oceanographic Products Postscript This may be your first experience with the wide variety of operational products. You may enter this career area in the future, or be involved in products that requires these data. You are strongly advised to make IDX captures of your best IDV products, and keep them for future demonstrations of your skills.
