Data Integration

Since 2005, the CHAMP project has developed techniques and software for integrating data from observers (coral bleaching, disease, and health), autonomous monitoring stations (meteorology, sea salinity/temperature/depth, light, dissolved gases, ocean currents, particulates, fish populations), satellites (Sea Surface Temperature, winds, light, chlorophyll a), radar (weather, ocean surface currents), and numerical computer models (forecast models, reanalyses).

The CHAMP data integration efforts are part of the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program's CREIOS initiative.

External (satellite, model, and reanalysis) products that are currently integrated for ecological forecasting by the CHAMP ICON project include:

  • SST and sub-surface sea temperature
