CoastWatch, Northeast Regional NodeEntry ID: gov.noaa.class.CWNOE
Abstract: ABSTRACT: The sea surface temperature (SST) products were derived from NOAA's Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellites (POES) for the coastal United States. They were created by NOAA CoastWatch Program and are now only available through this website. CoastWatch started with only POES/AVHRR SST data for the East Coast, but later added more regional nodes of Alaska, Caribbean, Gulf of ... Mexico, Hawaii, Great Lakes, Northeast, Southeast and West Coast. The products provided here are in the original CoastWatch Format, which does not apply to the SST data currently created. The new data is now provided in HDF format, which is also available through this web site.
SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: The image products are produced within 4 hours of the satellite observation. Products from which this data is derived are available retrospectively from the NOAA CoastWatch Program.
