DescriptionThis dataset contains airborne sea surface temperature (SST) measurements from the Sub-Mesoscale Ocean Dynamics Experiment (S-MODE). Data were collected approximately 300 km offshore of San Fransisco during a pilot campaign in October 2021, and an intensive operating period (IOP) in Fall 2022. S-MODE aims to understand how ocean dynamics acting on short spatial scales influence the vertical exchange of physical and biological variables in the ocean. The Multiscale Observing System of the Ocean Surface (MOSES) is an aerial observing system that primarily uses a longwave infrared (LWIR) camera to record SST at a resolution of several meters. Individual images are mosaiced together to provide a synoptic map of the sample domain covering approximately 200 km. MOSES is mounted on the B200 aircraft which flies daily surveys of the field domain during deployments. Data are available in netCDF format.
