Global Ocean Observations



Miami, Florida

June 1, 2009

Organizers: Gustavo J. Goni (AOML) and John Lamkin (SEFSC) (Contact)


The objective of this workshop is to present to the NOAA/SEFSC different types of ocean data and products that are already available to the community, and particularly those in which NOAA/AOML is involved. Emphasis will be given to data and products derived from several key components of the ocean observing system that are available and may be of interest to those involved in fisheries research. Some of these observations and products may be of particular interest to those studying processes with short periods and small spatial scales, while others are related to longer scale variability.
