Paper published: Community review of Southern Ocean satellite data needs

This joint initiative of Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS), Climate and the Cryosphere (CliC), and World Meteorological Organization Polar Space Task Group (WMO PSTG) aimed to identify the satellite data requirements for the Southern Ocean (across all temporal/spatial scales) and to compile this information into a community report of Southern Ocean satellite data requirements. This work resulted in a Community Review of Southern Ocean Satellite Data Needs which was recently published in Antarctic Science.

Description:
This is a community review paper that highlights the current priority satellite data requirements of the Southern Ocean research and logistics community. This publication is the result of an international survey of data needs, as well as a period of extensive community consultation and input.

This publication is sponsored by SOOS, CliC and SCAR
