NOAA CoastWatch/OceanWatch provides easy access for everyone to global and regional satellite data products for use in understanding, managing and protecting ocean and coastal resources and for assessing impacts of environmental change in ecosystems, weather, and climate. A CoastWatch objective is to educate and train users about using satellite data and CoastWatch products. The CoastWatch Data Portal is a collection of services that facilitate the discovery and utilization of satellite ocean remote sensing products.  In this seminar, Michael Soracco will provide an overview of these services and demonstrate the map viewer for the CoastWatch Data Portal. You will learn how to display, explore, and access sea surface temperature, salinity, color, wind, synthetic aperture radar and sea level anomaly data products available through NOAA CoastWatch.  https://coastwatch.noaa.gov/cw/index.html

Michael Soracco is the HelpDesk Coordinator for NOAA CoastWatch/OceanWatch/PolarWatch.  He specializes in user access by developing and maintaining data products, the data portal (and website) and runs the helpdesk.  Michael studied aerospace engineering for his B.AE at Georgia Institute of Technology and earned his Master’s degree in Business at Central Michigan University.  He served as a commissioned officer in the NOAA Corps servicing equatorial moored buoys, conducting coastal hydrographic surveys, and as an ocean remote sensing operations officer.  He has developed and taught the NOAA GIS course and is a fundamental source of the CoastWatch program’s “corporate memory.“
