Great Lakes CoastWatch Announces Newly Reconstructed Web Site

The Great Lakes CoastWatch node located at the Great Lakes Environmental
Research Laboratory (GLERL) in Ann Arbor, MI announces the availability of its
newly reconstructed web site at:     http://coastwatch.glerl.noaa.gov
The new web site has numerous features, utilities, and data types including:

-- all Great Lakes CoastWatch satellite (AVHRR) temperature and reflectance data
available for viewing and download via the web site.

-- SatView-a Java based interactive analysis tool for CoastWatch AVHRR
temperature and reflectance imagery.

-- the Great Lakes Surface Environmental Analysis (GLSEA) composite temperature
chart has winter ice cover concentration (from the National Ice Center (NIC)
Great Lakes Ice Analysis).

-- yearly and last 365 day animation's of the daily GLSEA chart in QT, FLC, and
AVI formats.

-- Great Lakes Coastal Forecasting System nowcasts and forecasts of numerous
lake parameters (currents, wave height, etc.).

-- links to numerous web sites for complimentary data including Great Lakes
bathymetry, water levels, buoy data, weather data, etc.

As in the past, Great Lakes CoastWatch continues to supply Michigan Sea Grant
with near real-time satellite imagery for its contoured water surface
temperature product, available via a link to the Michigan Sea Grant web site.

A signed Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) is no longer needed to access CoastWatch
near real-time satellite (AVHRR) imagery.  Currently, only a username and
password, which can be generated and obtained interactively upon visiting the
web site, are necessary for access.  Your username and password are valid for
all future access.  (Note: RADARSAT imagery has limited access owing to the
proprietary nature of this data.).  Other data types and products do not require
a username and password for access.

Although still under construction, our goal is to develop a comprehensive web
site for access to near real-time and retrospective satellite and in situ
environmental data and products to meet the needs of various users for
environmental monitoring, decision making, research, educational, and
recreational uses.
