Firstly MANY THANKS to yourself and all others in the NEODAAS team who have provided near-real-time cruise coverage for the SSB programme, both last year and this year. The dedication in providing daily coverage, and ongoing advice on image coverage and quality, for all of the cruises was truly impressive. I'm aware that the near-real-time information proved extremely valuable in identifying spatial patterns and tracking changes, at all times of year.
This is fantastic!!! Many thanks for providing the sample data. I can read the netcdf files no problem and construct the anomalies. You've created a very nice, easy to use dataset that I will be able to easily share with the rest of the science team while at sea.
NEODAAS was giving me amazing support for a month long project that will play a crucial part in my postgraduate studies at SAMS. During a combined cruise and sea glider mission on the North Irish and West Scottish shelf sea NEODAAS was providing me with daily satellite images for different phytoplankton and ocean physics data. Only with this help we were able to identify interesting biological features on the open water, which were then successfully recorded by the sea glider. I was very impressed with the fantastic communication and very quick and efficient response time, during the whole length of the project and especially during my time on sea.
I was very happy with the support and the products and I am very happy to say that the mission was successful. We could Identify a high Chlorophyll area between Ireland and Islay which we recorded with the glider. I just checked the glider data and the increase in Chlorophyll is clearly visible, which is very exciting.
The data was brilliant in helping us to validate our model and the help that accompanied it was sublime! This service has been seamless and you responded to all my queries extremely speedily which was extremely helpful.
I just wanted to let you know that the images (NOAA AVHRR and MODIS) have been extremely useful to us whilst monitoring the eruption in Iceland from late August onwards. We have been able to map the active part of the lava very regularly.
I am very happy to report that we have just received over 15,000 Level-1 SeaWiFS HRPT files from the Dundee Satellite Receiving Station and Naval Research Laboratory, Stennis Space Center which have been ingested and processed and are now being added to the existing archive for distribution to the ocean color community. I would very much like to thank these two organizations for their generosity in opening up their archives and providing us with these previously unavailable data sets.
