Abstract : This report covers development of a framework for the diagnosis of ocean upper mixed layer parameters; development and validate models for atmospheric correction of visible and infrared retrievals for the determination of color and SST fields, and improvement of mapping and analysis algorithms for SST, color and altimetric observations; and To place these fields in a multi-parameter data base (space and time dimensions) which facilitates mixed layer model forcing and validation.
