Abstract : NORDA's Remote Sensing Branch will conduct an operational demonstration as part of the GEOSAT Ocean Applications Program (GOAP). The purpose of the demonstration is to evaluate the extent ot which oceanographic products can be derived from altimeter data in near real-time. This technical note describes the information processing system that will be used for this task, and plans for its development and testing. It also covers plans for the operation of the system, personnel assignments and training, evaluation of the products, and eventual transfer of the operations to FNOC or NAVOCEANO.
