The Multi-sensor Improved Sea Surface Temperatures (MISST) for the Global Ocean Data Assimilation Experiment (GODAE) project goals:
Produce an improved, high-resolution, global, near-real-time (NRT), sea surface temperature analysis through the combination of satellite observations from complementary infrared (IR) and microwave (MW) sensors. More on MISST SSTs.
Demonstrate the impact of these improved sea surface temperatures
(SSTs) on operational ocean models, numerical weather prediction,
and tropical cyclone intensity forecasting. More on Impact Studies.
