Animation of the estimated ocean surface latent (top) and sensible (bottom) heat fluxes over the period of 1 August 2018 to 31 March 2021, produced using the CYGNSS Level 2 Ocean Surface Heat Flux Climate Data Record Version 1.1, which provides the time-tagged and geolocated ocean surface heat flux parameters with 25 x 25 kilometer resolution using wind speed data provided by the Delay Doppler Mapping Instrument (DDMI) aboard the CYGNSS satellite constellation. The dataset can be accessed from the PO.DAAC Portal at https://doi.org/10.5067/CYGNS-C2H11 (DOI: 10.5067/CYGNS-C2H11).

Evolution of the NASA Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) sea surface salinity (SSS) response to the 2020 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 2020 Atlantic tropical cyclones. (SMAP SSS DOI: 10.5067/SMP50-3TPCS).

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 2020 Atlantic hurricane season response. (MUR SST DOI: 10.5067/GHGMR-4FJ04; SMAP SSS DOI: 10.5067/SMP50-3TPCS).

Evolution of the NASA Multi-Scale Ultra-High Resolution (MUR) sea surface temperature (SST) response to the 2020 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 2020 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).
