The Workshop on Assimilation of Satellite Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) Retrievals was held on 2426 April 2001 in Camp Springs, Maryland, at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Science Center. The purpose of the workshop was for NOAA's National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service Office of Research and Applications to initiate a collaborative project with the U.S. Navy, National Centers for Environmental Prediction, the industry, and academia. The concept of the project was to develop an optimal method for assimilating satellite data into operational analyses of sea surface temperature. The aim of the workshop was to develop a demonstration system with the following results. First, ensure that the advantages of each data type (polar orbiting and geostationary) are fully exploited, while minimizing the impact of potential errors. Second, employ state-of-the-art radiative transfer modeling, variational assimilation techniques, intersensor calibration, and use of external data such as upper-air temperatures and humidities. The resulting product will represent the next big step in use of satellite data for sea surface temperature and should be the product of choice for numerical weather prediction, operational oceanography, and fisheries and climate research.
