National Centers for Environmental Prediction.
Provide analysis and real-time forecast guidance (1-16 days) on marine
meteorological, oceanographic, and cryospheric parameters over the global
oceans and coastal areas of the US.
Evaluate quality of retrievals of ocean surface data from satellite borne
sensors, improve their quality as needed, and examine the impacts of the
data on forecast models.
Monitor performance of operational guidance products.
