As part of the NRT service, NEODAAS supplied satellite data bulletins to the 29th Atlantic Meridional Transect (AMT) research cruise to provide a 'view from above' of what is happening in the ocean around the RRS Discovery as they travelled from Southampton to the Falkland Islands. NEODAAS has been supporting the AMT cruise with satellite data since 1998. The measurements collected as part of AMT form a crucial role in validating products offered by NEODAAS and allowing improvements to algorithms.
"The satellite images provided by NEODAAS helped us contextualise the measurements we collected. Many thanks indeed!"
