Global Altimetry Products

NOAA/AOML distributes on its web server several products derived from altimetric sea height anomaly fields, for weather and climate studies. These products are validated using data from a variety of platforms, such as XBTs, drifters, moorings, and profiling floats. Go

Regional Satellite Products

Time series and maps of sea surface temperature and sea height anomaly for several geographic regions. Go

Long Term Time Series of Surface Currents

The spatial and temporal variability of several surface currents, which are key components of the Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC) are also being monitored on this web site. Some of the currents monitored through this project are the Agulhas and North Brazil Currents, and their associated rings, the Yucatan and Florida currents. Go
