The Spaceborne Ocean Intelligence Network (SOIN) is a five-year research and operational development project that addresses barriers to implementing certain oceanographic applications of the Earth-observation sensors RADARSAT-2 and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), capabilities that will be implemented for MetOc Halifax through the Polar Epsilon Project, as well as Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) and Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS). The project is divided into two phases with the three-year Phase I focusing on developing state-of-the-art sea-surface temperature and diver-visibility products, operational tools, supporting infrastructure and the ability to detect thermal fronts, eddies and water mass boundaries with RADARSAT-2 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery, while the two-year Phase II will focus on operationalization. The project began in June 2007 with funding provided by the Canadian Space Agency through its Government Related Initiatives Program. This report provides a summary of project activities and accomplishments in FY 09/10, which completes Phase I of the project, and provides the proposal for Phase II of the project, which commences in April 2010.
