PREPARATION AND DISSEMINATION OF THE AVERAGED MAPS AND FIELDS OF SELECTED SATELLITE PARAMETERS FOR THE BLACK SEA WITHIN THE SeaDataNet PROJECT

Statistical sea surface temperature (SST) and chlorophyll a (Chl.a) maps and fields (monthly, seasonal and annual) have been prepared for the Black Sea region in the framework of the SeaDataNet project. Daily MODIS/Aqua (SST and Chl.a) and SeaWiFS (Chl.a) level 2 (L2) datasets were utilised to produce 1 km resolution final products, which are disseminated through the Internet. Data processing was done with the SeaDAS (SeaWiFS Data Analysis System) software package. Standard algorithms were used for calculation of Chl. a and SST. Only 'clean' pixels (i.e. pixels without any SeaDAS flag) were taken for averaging. Data interpolating empirical orthogonal functions (DINEOF) method was tested to reconstruct missing SST data, however, it did not work properly in conditions of insufficient data, producing some unrealistic results so it was not applied to the final products. In total, about 500 averaged maps and fields were prepared for period of September 1997 to December 2004 (Chl. a from SeaWiFS) and for period July, 2002, December 2007 (Chl. a and SST from MODIS).

Investigation of Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Anomalies over Cyprus Area
Georgiou, Andreas; Akcit, Nuhcan (2016-04-08)
The temperature of the sea surface has been identified as an important parameter of the natural environment, governing processes that occur in the upper ocean. This paper focuses on the analysis of the Sea Surface Temperature (SST) anomalies at the greater area of Cyprus. For that, SST data derived from MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument on board both Aqua and Terra sun synchronous satellites were used. A four year period was chosen as a first approach to address and describe t...
Modeling the influence of hydrodynamic processes on anchovy distribution and connectivity in the black sea Karadeniz'deki hamsi dağılımı ve bölgeler arası bağlantısı üzerine hidrodinamik proseslerin etkisinin modellenmesi
Fach Salihoğlu, Bettina Andrea (2014-01-01)
Dispersal mechanisms of Black Sea anchovy larvae (Engraulis encrasicolus ponticus) across the Black Sea were studied with an individual based anchovy larvae model embedded in a Lagrangian model using surface currents calculated from daily dynamic height topography maps of altimeter data during a period of three years (2001-2003). Particles representing anchovy eggs were released at different sites during June to August and their movement was tracked over time. Drifters were advected for 36 days, representin...
Investigation of the dependence of satellite-based precipitation estimate errors to distance from the coastline Uydu Kaynakli Yaǧmur Verilerinin Hata Oranlarinin Deniz Kiyilarina Olan Uzakliǧa Baǧli Analizi
YILMAZ, MERİÇ; Amjad, Muhammad; Bulut, Burak; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (2017-01-01)
In this study, Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) 3B42 v7 satellite based rainfall data are verified by using cumulative monthly rainfall data measured at 257 stations operated by the General Directorate of Meteorology between 1998 and 2014. Long-term mean values of station-based and satellite-based rainfall data, correlation between them, Standard deviation of monthly average and anomaly components, and standard deviation of satellite based data error are analyzed. Variation of satellite-based data...
Principal component and time series analysis of air-sea interactions in the "seas of the old world"
Gündüz, Murat; Özsoy, Emin; Graduate School of Marine Sciences (2002)
Climate data on surface atmospheric variables, sea surface temperature and computed air-sea fluxes are analysed to describe comparative surface climatolo gies of the 'Seas of the Old World' (Black, Caspian and Mediterranean Seas) and to investigate their interannual and interdecadal variability. Based on these analyses, differences and similarities between climates of these basins and their relationships to other global systems are identified. Empirical Orthogonal Function (EOF) Analysis is used to study sp...

The great success of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) and its successor Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) has accelerated the development of global high-resolution satellite-based precipitation products (SPP). However, the quantitative accuracy of SPPs has to be evaluated before using these datasets in water resource applications. This study evaluates the following GPM-era and TRMM-era SPPs based on two years (2014-2015) of reference daily precipitation data from rain gauge networks in te...
