The EUMETSAT Satellite Application Facility on Ocean and Sea Ice (OSI SAF) is an answer to the common requirements of meteorology and oceanography for a comprehensive information on the ocean-atmosphere interface. OSI SAF products are derived from meteorological satellite data and related to Sea Surface Temperature, Sea Ice, Radiative Fluxes and Winds at the ocean surface. Since 2002, the OSI SAF produces, controls quality and distributes, in near real-time, operational ocean observation products, with the necessary users support activities. The OSI SAF provides also some long term data records through reprocessing activities.
Permanent Research and Development activities allow to enhance the algorithms and products, and to take into account new satellites. The OSI SAF organises regular User Workshops to stimulate the discussion between users and OSI SAF partners, and to collect input and guidance for future evolutions of its products and services.
The next user workshop is hold at the Centre International de Conférences of Météo-France in Toulouse - France on 19th - 20th November 2014. For more information and registration, please go to the conference web site.
