(INTERpolated Products of Suspended Particulate Matters)

North West Shelf Demonstrator

Provide new interpolated non-algal SPM products from satellite data including the effect of the waves and the tide. A better first-guess field is introduced into the interpolation procedure. This first-guess provides a pre-interpretation of the physical background at the origin of the mineral SPM at the sea surface, which is particularly useful for operational coastal oceanography.

Interpolated non-algal SPM :

Expressed in milligram per liter, at the sea surface.

Products generated by ACRI-ST (Philippe Bryère) in collaboration whith IFREMER (Francis Gohin), in the frame of the MCGS project.
