Ship Of Opportunity Program

NOAA/AOML has recently implemented delayed and real-time mode quality control procedures for TSG data obtained from two ship of the SOOP, the MV Oleander and the MV Explorer.

The Oleander operation is made in collaboration with the NOAA - Northeast Fisheries Science Center that provides ship riders and maintenance support for the equipments. Scientists from other institutions are also collecting oceanographic data from Oleander.

Click on the ship name located in the legend of the map (right lower corner of the figure below) to display the data of sea surface salinity (SSS) and sea surface temperature (SST) obtained from TSG observations in these ships.
