Forecast products and associated satellite imagery from the Gulf of Mexico created by the NOAA Harmful Algal Bloom Operational Forecast System (HAB-OFS) from 2007-09-10 to the present

browse graphicPreview graphic
This collection contains inputs to, and outputs from the NOAA Harmful Algal Bloom Operational Forecast System (HAB-OFS) for the Gulf of Mexico in the form of documents, processed satellite imagery in HDF4 format, image files, and Geographic Information System (GIS) files, beginning on 2007-09-10. The HAB-OFS is operated by the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services to produce forecast bulletins for harmful algal blooms (HABs) of Karenia brevis (red tide) in the Gulf of Mexico. The bulletins contain an analysis of ocean color satellite imagery, field observations, models, public health reports and buoy data and forecasts of potential HAB transport, intensification and associated respiratory irritation based on the analysis of information from data providers. The bulletins are issued twice weekly during an active HAB and once weekly during a non-HAB period to a list of subscribers. Each year, NCEI creates a new accession containing the data collected during the previous 12 months.
