Message From Sam Walker:

*VERY IMPORTANT *that folks do not fly gliders anywhere near the 
wellhead.  There is a ton of cabling and big-time operations going on 
right now as BP prepares for the "topkill".  Please post a notice to 
this effect on your site.  I will remain POC here for the next week - 
and glad to help set up missions.

The zonation map on our wiki shows IOOS glider zones - folks need to 
meet that need for data on the shelf and outside the immediate well-head 
area.  Tons of ships in there doing sampling of the water and using 
fluorometry too - so no need for the gliders to get tangled up.

Awesome work

Real-Time Cloud filtered SST data kmz

Hi All,

Here is a kmz file that updates with real-time cloud filtered SST data at four different time averages (latest pass, 24 hour average, 3 day average, 8 day average).

I’m not sure how to add it to the kmz resource list

Good Luck to all!

The RU COOL has continuously operated an L-Band satellite tracking antenna and data acquisition system since 1992, and a larger diameter X-Band antenna and system since 2003. Both systems provide real-time access to the full resolution direct-broadcast imagery from an international constellation of polar-orbiting satellites.

The geographic area within range of our reception capabilities extends from the Gulf of Maine to the Yucatan Peninsula, and encompasses the entirety of the Gulf of Mexico.
