Animation of sea surface temperature over the period 2017-12-15 to 2019-07-10 based on the NOAA GHRSST GOES-16 (“G16”) ABI L3C v2.70 dataset. The dataset can be accessed from PODAAC Portal at https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/ABI_G16-STAR-L3C-v2.70. (DOI:10.5067/GHG16-3UO27)

July 22, 2019
Animation of ocean surface current speed over the period 1992-10-20 to 2019-07-11 based on the OSCAR (Ocean Surface Current Analysis Real-time) third degree grid with a 5 day resolution Level 4 dataset from Earth Space Research (ESR). Please note that the missing data are represented by the gray color. The dataset can be accessed from PODAAC Portal at https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/OSCAR_L4_OC_third-deg. (DOI:10.5067/OSCAR-03D01)

July 8, 2019
Animation of global sea surface temperature (SST) over the period 1981-09-01 to 2019-07-06 based on the GHRSST Level 4 AVHRR_OI Global Blended Sea Surface Temperature Analysis (GDS version 2) from NCEI. The data set can be accessed from PODAAC Portal at https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/AVHRR_OI-NCEI-L4-GLOB-v2.0. (DOI: 10.5067/GHAAO-4BC02)

Evolution of the NASA Multi-Scale Ultra-High Resolution (MUR) sea surface temperature (SST) response to the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season. It is common to observe trails of cooler water, or cold wakes, along hurricane tracks as a result of wind-induced mixing and turbulence that brings cold waters at depth to the surface. The cold wakes associated with the 2018 Atlantic tropical cyclones are clearly observed as waters approximately 2°C cooler from normal that persisted for several days. (MUR SST DOI: 10.5067/GHGMR-4FJ04).

June 11, 2019
Evolution of the NASA Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) sea surface salinity (SSS) response to the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season. It is common to observe patches of 1) salinity freshening due to enhanced precipitation and 2) salinity increase due to wind stress-generated vertical mixing, wherein increased salinity from a mid-level maximum is brought to the surface. The two effects are clearly observed along the tracks of the 2018 Atlantic tropical cyclones. (SMAP SSS DOI: 10.5067/SMP42-3TPCS).

Evolution of GOES-East IR, NASA Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) sea surface salinity (SSS), and NASA Multi-Scale Ultra-High Resolution (MUR) sea surface temperature (SST) response to the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season response. (MUR SST DOI: 10.5067/GHGMR-4FJ04; SMAP SSS DOI: 10.5067/SMP42-3TPCS).

Evolution of the NASA Multi-Scale Ultra-High Resolution (MUR) sea surface temperature (SST) response to Hurricanes Florence, Helene and Isaac of 2018. It is common to observe trails of cooler water, or cold wakes, along hurricane tracks as a result of wind-induced mixing and turbulence that brings cold waters at depth to the surface. The cold wakes associated with Florence, Helene, and Isaac are clearly observed as waters approximately 2°C cooler from normal along the hurricane track that persisted for several days. (MUR SST DOI: 10.5067/GHGMR-4FJ04).

Animation of global sea surface salinity (SSS) over the period 04-04-2015 to 31-12-2018 based on the 8-day running mean version 4.2 SMAP Level 3 product from JPL. (SMAP SSS DOI: 10.5067/SMP42-3TPCS).
