Monitoring: From Observations to information

Nologin Oceanic Weather Systems

Observational Data Product Management

Our team can collect and process a widespread variety of oceanographic data from marine environmental measurement networks around the world, including:

  • In-situ data from mooring buoys, drifters, profilers, tide gauges, HF radars, saildrones, etc.; as Copernicus Marine Provider, dealing with 6500 active stations (/50,000 historical ones) from more than 150 providers worldwide
  • Satellite data for surface temperature, salinity, sea level anomaly, significant wave height, ocean color, and chlorophyll; using datasets from most recent missions (Sentinels -S3 and S6- ones or the new Chinese-French CFOSAT mission) and planning to include forthcoming ones (i.e. related to swath altimetry)

We collect observational data in near-real-time basis, applying to them quality controls to later generate homogeneous observational data products. Resulting products are used for:

  • Service purposes (NOW is a Copernicus Marine InSitu TAC )
  • Supporting NOW modelling activities (observations assimilated or used for model validation)
  • Dissemination through our end-user applications, and support to our taylor made warning systems
