Paper Abstract

The analysis of the requirements for satellite-derived oceanic data to meet the needs of the civil marine community has been a continuing effort by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The priorities established for the most critical data are, in decreasing order: winds, sea surface temperature, waves, sea ice, ocean color, and circulation and currents. The general needs of academic, commercial, and governmental users are considered, with more detailed requirements for wave data presented as an example. The consideration of these needs are presented within the context of planned satellites that have been designed to meet national and international scientific and operational requirements.
