Abstract : Several software modules have been developed for or by the Naval Research Laboratory to automate the analysis and interpretation of satellite infrared imagery in the Gulf Stream region of the northwest Atlantic Ocean. The modules have been integrated to form the Semi-Automated Mesoscale Analysis System version 1.2 (SAMAS). This document provides the information required for an analysis to use SAMAS 1.2. This document provides descriptions of what the modules of SAMAS 1.2 do and describes user inputs and outputs. This document also provides information on the location of common source codes required for program development and data formats for input/output files.
