CERSAT Buoy Data Base
Foreword   CERSAT daily collects and  homogenizes data measured by buoys from different sources.  This activity is done in order to support research activity at IFREMER (specially in wind, wave, SST, SSS and fluxes thematics) but our compilation is also open to external users.    Buoys Network Latency Network status Nature Region of interest CDIP Scripps 1 month Collect and conversion activated Direct provider US Coasts ECMWF compilation 6 month Collect and conversion activated Compilation Global CORIOLIS (IFREMER)…
Ifremer is deeply involved in SMOS mission, as an expertise and production center (CATDS). CERSAT particularly focus on the development and improvement of the retrieval of salinity and extreme winds from the SMOS L-band radiometer. Other Ifremer labs (LPO, SISMER) contribute to this activity by collecting and providing qualified in situ measurements for validation and intercomparison.
Several relevant datasets have been collected from various sources for OceanFlux project. They have been processed in order to provide consistent and homogeneous composite files, on the same grid and temporal resolution, as well as multi-year climatologies.
For complementing its Central Facilities capability in Darmstadt and taking more benefit from specialized expertise in Member States, EUMETSAT created Satellite Application Facilities (SAFs), based on co-operation between several institutes and hosted by a National Meteorological Service. The Ocean and Sea Ice Satellite Application Facility (OSI SAF) is an answer to the common requirements of meteorology and oceanography for a comprehensive information on the ocean-atmosphere interface. One of the objectives of the OSI SAF is to produce, control and distribute…
The GHRSST archive at CERSAT
GHRSST is an international project organised as a partnership between distributed production centers responsible for generating SST products, to a common format and content specification. Several such regional data assembly centres (RDACs) exist throughout the world. Their primary task is to collate all level 2 satellite SST measurements within their region or for their sensors, perform quality assessment and reissue the data in a common format, including a measure of the quality of every measurement, suitable for model assimilation. These…
