Ensure proper and maximum real time delivery of remote sensing data

Participants: CNR, ENEA, DMI, IFREMER, AZTI-Tecnalia, NERC, CLS, PdE, NUIC, DNSC

  • integrate existing satellite observing systems
  • coordinate access to Earth Observation (EO) products taking full advantage of existing national and European resources
  • ensure advanced satellite products for monitoring and assimilation into ECOOP models during TOP

Links with other WPs

  • WP3: satellite products based upon the results of the R&D activity
  • WP8: ECOOP information management
first year activities
First year activities

Design of the RT and NRT data satellite acquisition and delivery

system for the TOP phase

 D2.3.1.1 (CNR, Ifremer, CLS, DMI)


  • analysis of current satellite systems/products
  • analysis of WP3 outcomes and planned activities for the next 6 months
  • analysis of the in situ data required to produce advanced R/S products
  • design of the RS observing system for TOP: data input, products, format, delivery systems
satellite products
Satellite products

The new Satellite products to be assimilated by ECOOP models


  • SST merged R/S - in situ products (Gulf of Biscay, Adriatic and Baltic Seas)
  • Altimetry merged R/S with tide gauges and mean dynamic topography (Gulf of Biscay and Black Sea)
  • Ocean Colour merged R/S - in situ products (Gulf of Biscay and Adriatic Sea)

  • During TOP, specific ECOOP SST data will be produced by EuroGOOS sub-region SST processing systems after introducing the improvements resulting from WP3
  • SST data input:


L2P data products provide satellite SST observations together with a measure of uncertainty for each observation
  • L2P data are written in a common netCDF format, following CF 1.0 conventions
SST: Gulf of Biscay



IBIROOS area is covered by the multi-sensor L4 SST products computed by Ifremer using data from both infra-red and micro-wave radiometers

Daily global SST with a resolution of 0.1°res.

NRT SST are produced since October 2007.

ECOOP Improvements

The ODYSSEA chain will be used and tuned to provide daily SST fields at a higher resolution (0.02° res.) over the IBIROOS area.

Improvements in the intercalibration using in situ data

Including all coastal stations

Data format : Netcfd, complying to CF-1.0 convention and GHRSST format

Delivery system

ftp and OpenDAP

SST: Baltic Sea


  • Present:
  • L2P data corrected from skin to subskin
  • single sensor error bias applied to all sensors
  • relevant satellite observations used as input for the Baltic Sea L4 processing system (DMI) at 0.03° res.

ECOOP Imprevements

Merged multi-sensor L4 at 0.03° res.

Adjustment of all satellite observations to the most accurate sensor (AATSR)

Include near-real time MARNET buoy observations in the L4 analysis, if required.

Data format : Netcfd, complying to CF-1.0

convention and GHRSST format

Delivery system

ftp and OpenDAP

SST: Adriatic



Adriatic Sea is covered by the several SST products provided by the CNR

Daily images at 1km res. from AVHRR and MODIS

Daily SST data over the Adriatic model grid (AREG), 5km

NRT Mediterranean multi-sensor OISST (L4) at 1/16° res.

NRT SST Adriatic products available since October 2002, Mediterranean multi-sensor L4 since 2006.

ECOOP Improvements

Merged multi-sensor L3 over AREG grid

(with adjustment of all satellite observations to the most accurate sensors (AATSR/MODIS terra (4μm))

Data format : Netcfd, complying to CF-1.0 convention and GHRSST format

Delivery system

ftp and OpenDAP/THREDDS

Data Format: NetCDF

Data access: Opendap, anonymous FTP and Live Access Server

Black Sea : A new regional product
  • SLA relative to new mean profiles
    • Using new standard corrections  more consistent with SSH
    • Performed on longer periods (except for T/P : 7-years reference period)
  • Using a dedicated regional processing
    • Data selection with specific criteria based on mean profiles quality
    • Higher resolution
    • Local LWE correction (HF aliasing, orbit and tidal residual error)

Period 1992-2005 computed for all missions –> MHI + other deliveries



New products 1/8°

Standard AVISO 1/3°

New Real Time product

2 days gain

Old acquisition status based on IGDR and OGDR products

  • - OGDR do not have accurate orbit estimation
  • Merging of recent information (eddies, fronts) contained in the OGDR with large scale information from IGDR
  •  Useful for short term forecasts

Present products

Product delivery:

The product delivery occurs after the ongoing validation phase and is based on existing Ifremer's


ftp anonymous access:

web services:

NAUSICAA web server

PREVIMER web server

Opendap access is actually being setup and will be available for the IBI-ROOS area and all the

ocean color products

Design of the improved R&S system for the ECOOP project.

Daily merged MODIS/MERIS L2 on a pixel by pixel basis

Automatic extractions of data (SST, Chl, turbidity) from coastal networks for validation and visualization in the Ifremer web server of satellite images Nausicaa/MarCoast.

Satellite ocean colour: Adriatic


ECOOP Improvements

Chlorophyll estimated with different algorithms for case 1 and case 2 waters

A new processing chain will be developed for MERIS


Ad hoc OC products will be developed for modelling data validation and assimilation based on

modelling requirements. In particular daily, weekly and monthly chlorophyll and K490 products will

be developed using all the available satellite over the new Adriatic model grid (2km). This data will

substitute the ADRICOSM AREG products currently produced.

Delivery system & data Format

This delivery system will be upgraded in framework of the ADRICOSM-STAR project. In particular,

historical data, RT and NRT data will be delivered as netcfd CF-1.0. The data will be also available

from CNR-ISAC-GOS OpenDap facility. Accessible via THREEDS at:


Satellite data format harmonization
  • All data already written in standard, internationally agreed format
  • (netCDF, CF-1.0)
  • SSTGHRSST format
  • Altimetry AVISO format
  • Ocean colour  MERSEA format
  • Data delivery based on existing ftp and opendap servers.
