The Sea Surface Temperature Virtual Constellation (SST-VC) serves as the formal link between the Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) and the broader CEOS community. At the highest level, the SST-VC provides a means for CEOS to present its needs and requirements to GHRSST and for GHRSST to present its needs directly to CEOS, the global community of space agencies. In addition, there are several thematic connections between GHRSST and CEOS that take place at the working group level (e.g. between the GHRSST Climate Data Record Technical Advisory Group and the CEOS Working Group on Climate).
In November, 2015, we helped organize an opportunity for satellite oceanography data users to meet with and provide feedback to the data providers: a three-day Satellite Oceanography User Workshop focused on satellite-derived products of key oceanographic variables. We worked with the CEOS Working Group on Capacity Building & Data Democracy (WGCapD) to capture the workshop presentations & discussions on video for future access by data users unable to attend the workshop. Learn more and access the videos.
