NAUSICAA is a new interactive browser available on CERSAT web site allowing the visualization of satellite and in situ data over predefined regional areas, currently the Bay of Biscay, the Channel and North Sea, as well as the Gulf of Lion in the mediterrenean sea. This browser can be used with any recent navigator, users just need to register to get full access to all available features. The displayed data consist of images or vector data (mark-ups, arrows, contour lines) associated with advanced interactive functions(zoom, data extraction, color palette adjustement, layers,...). NAUSICAA is mostly intended for monitoring and understanding the bio-geophysical processes occuring in regional areas (algae bloom, etc...). It is supported by MarCoast ESA/European project.
In the frame of the PNEC (Programme National d'Environnement Côtier) and the Défi IFREMER Golfe de Gascogne, a new browser of images has been developed and is now available at the CERSAT site. It features day by day images of remote-sensed parameters over the Bay of Biscay (sea surface temperature, chlorophyll, solar irradiance,...). The browser makes possible monitoring and understanding of typical phenomena like algua blooms. It is also intended to feed and to validate biogeochemical models.
Live Access Server (LAS) is a web tool which provides flexible access to geo-referenced scientific data. Data can be visualized, subsetted and extracted into various formats. The CERSAT LAS features most of its gridded products such as wind fields, , fluxes, sea surface temparature. New products will be added soon.
