SAF objectives

The OSI SAF is an answer to requirements, from the meteorological and oceanographic communities of EUMETSAT Member and Cooperating States, for comprehensive information derived from meteorological satellites at the ocean-atmosphere interface. The OSI SAF offers a precious complement to in-situ data, based on continuously increasing temporal and geographical resolution products from coastal to global coverage.

It takes into account, in particular, the requirements expressed in the framework of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Global Climate Observing System (GCOS), Group for High Resolution Sea Surface temperature (GHRSST), and the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS).
