Additional Activities

Additional existing activities which have been identified by the Consortium would benefit from collaboration with GlobWave (and vice-versa). Some activities are not wave related but there would be significant benefits resulting from collaboration on parallel techniques in another domain i.e. Cal/Val, sea surface temperature, observation network design.

The Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation is a NOAA organisation which aims to enable the weather, climate and environmental analysis and prediction community to effective assimilate satellite data into their models and processes.

The National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service (NESDIS) provides timely access to global environmental data from satellites and other sources (e.g. in situ) to promote, protect and enhance the US economy, security and quality of life.

The NRL Atmospheric Variational Data Assimilation (NAVDAS) is a data assimilation suite for generating atmospheric state estimates to satisfy a variety of US Navy needs.

The Global Observation Assimilation Experiment (GODAE) allows analysis of temperature, salinity and velocity profiles of the ocean to support climate forecasts and oceanographic research.

The NCEP Global Observation Assimilation System (GODAS) was developed at NCEP and enables the analysis of the ocean climate variability.

The National Wave Observation plan was a US inter-agency effort involving the IOOS, USACE, NDBC and the ACT which aimed to define a strategy for nationwide, accurate and sustainable wave observations.

The NEXT Envisat SAR Toolbox (NEST) allows data retrieval from the ASAR and AMI instruments and the ability to generate quick look images as well as functionality such as statistical analysis and re-sampling algorithms.

Surfline is the website recognised to provide the best surf information to the global surfing community.

WavSat is a publicly available archive of Altimeter data developed by Satellite Observing Systems (SOS). is a commercial service developed by ARGOSS based on an extensive database of satellite Altimeter data and SAR wave measurements combined with hind-cast modelling.

PISTACH is a CNES funded project to develop new standards for the processing of Altimetry data in coastal zones.

COASTALT is a project funded by ESA, with the main objective to move pulse-limited coastal Altimetry towards an operational status by defining and testing a new coastal radar Altimeter product so that ESA can routinely generate and distribute the Envisat coastal Altimetry product.

The Optimal Design of Observational Networks (ODON) was an initiative to develop new techniques for sea surface temperature observing systems in the Baltic and North seas.

The Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) is the oceanographic component of the Global Earth Observing System of Systems (GEOSS).

The Prediction Of Waves, Wakes and Offshore Wind (POW'WOW) was an initiative funded by the European Commision to harmonise the approach to offshore wind and wave modelling and to help the wake research communities by establishing virtual laboratories (ViLabs), creating expert groups and setting up specialised workshops with a focus on key topics within the wake user community.

The Data INtegration System for Eutrophication Assessment (INSEA) in coastal waters is a project aimed at the analysis of excessive plant growth in coastal regions, caused by water bodies receiving excessive nutrients (e.g. nitrogen, phosphorous) assessment of coastal related activities which combine models with satellite and in-situ measurements.

Magic Seaweed is a website aimed at the global surfing community.

Coriolis a project hosted by Ifremer, a member of our consortium.

The GECA project is an ESA initiative (in collaboration with CEOS) for the global calibration and validation community.

The Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) is organised as a partnership between regional groups responsible for generating SST products, to a common GHRSST specification, within a limited geographical area.

Medspiration is a project funded by ESA to produce a robust and reliable set of SST data by combining the best outputs from several independent SST missions
