This station provides chlorophyll , SST, and winds satellite products for the Taiwan Strait, which are derived from sensors listed below:

  • 1. Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-View Sensor (SeaWiFS)
  • 2. Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS)
  • 3. Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR)
  • 4. Quick Scatterometer (QuikSCAT)

    The data are downloaded from NASA. MRSNM devotes to necessary further process of the data. Cylindrical equidistance projection is used as standard projection. Standard algorithms used in SEADAS4.9 ( is adopted for chlorophyll and SST.

    All are NASA standard satellite products. No regional algorithms have been used. Users have to be cautious of any potential errors due to the use of global standard algorithms in this coastal water.
