(CAUTION: some of these products are navigated better than others but I
can not say which is the most accurate... I don't know.)
- John Hopkins Images
These are nice
images . For Georges Bank area click on either "CMO
or "Northern Gulf Stream" and then click a clear thumbnail image.
The advantage of these is the 3-day and 7-day composite views. No
SMAST also has a web
for extracting particular regions.
- GLOBEC Images
Jim Bisagni's collection for the GLOBEC project focussing on
GofMaine & Georges Bank.
This is another option
with a variety of regions selected.
- Onboard Terascan Images
Some ships like the OCEANUS now have their own satellite dish to obtain
images directly. This is only an example plot.
- Rutgers Images
This option I have not yet
. I have never tried extracting temperature from these
images. When you get to the list of images, the largest sized
will be the clearest views. These have bathymetry overlaid and
These images were once available through the old "XBROWSE" routine
are now part of a larger Distributed
Oceanographic Data System (DODS). I currently use this system to
the actual data and make my own plots with overlays.
