        abstract:  This archival package contains an operational Satellite Ocean Heat Content Suite (SOHCS) product generated by NOAA National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS). The operational algorithm implemented was developed at the University of Miami/Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS). The SOHCS product measures the integrated vertical temperature from the sea surface to the depth of the 26°C isotherm. The Algorithm uses a reduced gravity model to estimate the 20 degree isotherm depth based on objectively analyzed blended sea surface height anomaly fields from operational altimeters (Satellite with ARgos and ALtiKa (SARAL), Jason-1, Jason-2 and Cryosat-2) and Geo-Polar blended SST analyses. The data consists of seven parameters including sea surface height anomaly and its mapping error, depth of the 20° and 26° Celsius isotherm, mixed layer depth, ocean heat content and sea surface temperature. The grid spacing of the data in both latitude and longitude is 0.25°.
        purpose:  This dataset is available to the public for a wide variety of uses including scientific research and analysis.

            description:  Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer A meteorological satellite [instrument] with two bands that is used for large area Earth observation at 1 km spatial resolution. Source: Glossary of GIS and Remote Sensing Terms, University of Vermont. (http://fwie.fw.vt.edu/tws-gis/glossary.htm; last accessed on 09/22/2004). Specifically, this instrument type is to be used to represent AVHRR/1: "There are two series of AVHRR instruments. Built by ITT Aerospace/Optical Division in the mid 1970s, the AVHRR/1 is a four-channel, filter-wheel spectrometer/radiometer (Appendix) while the AVHRR/2, built in the early 1980s, is identical except for the addition of Channel 5."

            type:  GOES Imager
            description:  Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite Imager The GOES I-M Imager is a five channel (one visible, four infrared) imaging radiometer designed to sense radiant and solar reflected energy from sampled areas of the earth. By means of a servo driven, two-axis gimbaled mirror scanning system in conjunction with a Cassegrain telescope, the Imager's multispectral channels can simultaneously sweep an 8-kilometer (5 statute mile) north-to-south swath along an east-to-west/west-to-east path, at a rate of 20 degrees (optical) east-west per second. This translates into being able to scan a 3000 by 3000 km (1864 by 1864 miles) "box" centered over the United States in just 41 seconds. The actual scanning sequence takes places by sweeping in an East-West direction, stepping in the North-South direction, than sweeping back in a West-East direction, stepping North-South, sweeping East-West, and so on. The Imager consists of electronics, power supply, and sensor modules. The sensor module containing the telescope, scan assembly, and detectors, is mounted on a baseplate outside the main structure of the spacecraft, together with shields and louvers for thermal control. The electronics module provides redundant circuitry and performs command, control, and signal processing functions; it also serves as a structure for mounting and interconnecting the electronic boards for proper heat dissipation. The power supply module contains the converters, fuses, and power control for interfacing with the spacecraft electrical power subsystem. The electronics and power supply modules are mounted inside the spacecraft on the internal equipment panel. (From: http://noaasis.noaa.gov/NOAASIS/ml/imager.html)

            type:  Poseidon-3 altimeter
            description:  Poseidon-3 altimeter Poseidon-3 is the main instrument on board the French-U.S. satellite Jason-2 launched in 2008 and was derived from the Poseidon-2 altimeter on Jason-1. The Poseidon-3 altimeter is a compact, low-power, low-mass instrument offering a high degree of reliability. Poseidon-3 is a radar altimeter that emits pulses at two frequencies (13.6 and 5.3 GHz; the second frequency is used to determine the electron content in the atmosphere) and analyzes the return signal reflected by the surface. The signal round-trip time is estimated very precisely to calculate the range, after applying the necessary corrections. Jason-2 data are being archived by the NODC as part of the Comprehensive Large Array-data Stewardship System (CLASS)

                code:  MTSAT-2 (Himawari 7)
            description: https://www.wmo-sat.info/oscar/satellites/view/166 MTSAT-2 Synonym: Himawari 7 Client: Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Launch date: February 18, 2006 Launch vehicle: H-IIA Launch site: Tanegashima Space Center Orbit: Geostationary orbit: 145 deg. Mass: 4,650kg (at launch) Electrical power: 3,410 W Design life: 10 years Description The MTSAT-2 is a multi-functional satellite that carries out both an aviation mission, including air traffic control, and a meteorological mission. The purpose of the aviation mission is to improve traffic congestion and safety in the Asia-Pacific region with a next-generation global-scale air traffic safety system made up of communications, navigation, tracking and air traffic control. The purpose of the meteorological mission is to capture, collect and deliver meteorological images and/or data, inheriting and expanding the mission of the GMS-5 which is also currently in service. Multi-functional Transport Satellites (MTSAT) are a series of geostationary weather satellites operated by the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA). MTSAT carries an aeronautical mission to assist air navigation, plus a meteorological mission to provide imagery over the Asia-Pacific region for the hemisphere centered on 140 East. The meteorological mission includes an imager giving nominal hourly full Earth disk images in five spectral bands (one visible, four infrared). MTSAT are spin stabilized satellites. With this system images are built up by scanning with a mirror that is tilted in small successive steps from the north pole to south pole at a rate such that on each rotation of the satellite an adjacent strip of the Earth is scanned. It takes about 25 minutes to scan the full Earth's disk. This builds a picture 10,000 pixels for the visible images (1.25 km resolution) and 2,500 pixels (4 km resolution) for the infrared images. The MTSAT-2 (also known as Himawari 7) and its radiometer (MTSAT-2 Imager) was successfully launched on 18 February 2006. For this Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) dataset, skin sea surface temperature (SST) measurements are calculated from the IR channels of the MTSAT-2 Imager full resolution data in satellite projection on a hourly basis. L2P datasets including Single Sensor Error Statistics (SSES) are then derived following the GHRSST Data Processing Specification (GDS) version 1.5. Submitted to ICES on 2018-01-03.

            description:  The NPOESS Preparatory Project (NPP) was renamed to Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) in honor of Verner E. Suomi, University of Wisconsin meteorologist, widely recognized as the "Father of Satellite Meteorology." Suomi NPP is the first next generation polar-orbiting satellite in the JPSS series, and is considered the bridge between NOAA's legacy polar satellite fleet, NASA's Earth observing missions and JPSS constellation. Launched in October 2011, Suomi NPP boasts five state-of-the-art instruments: (1) VIIRS, (2) CrIS, (3) ATMS, (4) OMPS, and (5) CERES FM5— which will be the similar instruments carried on JPSS-1. It has design life of five years and was launched with a Delta-II Mission Launch Vehicle from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.
