Paper Abstract

Since early 1990 KNMI has been running an operational system to produce and distribute image-products, based on in real time received and processed NOAA-AVHRR-data. Maps of sea surface temperature and total suspended matter concentrations of the North Sea and IJsselmeer are produced with a regular frequency (minimal once a week). If necessary daily maps are produced, indicating locations of blooms of Coccolithophore algae in the North Sea, of drifting layers of Blue Algae and/or ice-cover on the water-surface of the IJsselmeer. Digital image-files on floppy-disk and color-coded hardcopies of the maps are available for the user. During the last years KNMI, in co-operation with other institutes, has put a lot of effort into the stimulation of operational use of the NOAA image-products in the marine environment.
