The Spaceborne Ocean Intelligence Network (SOIN) was a six-year research and operational development project that addressed barriers to developing and implementing oceanographic applications derived from Earth-observation sensors such as RADARSAT-2 and MODIS, capabilities that were provided by the Polar Epsilon Project, combined with existing AVHRR and MERIS sensor data. The project was divided into two phases. The 2007/08 to 2009/10 three-year Phase I focused on developing state-of-the-art sea-surface temperature and diver-visibility products, operational tools, supporting infrastructure and an ability to detect thermal fronts, eddies and water mass boundaries with RADARSAT-2 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery. The 2010/11 to 2012/13 three-year Phase II focused on operationalization and implementation of SOIN capabilities. The SOIN project began in June 2007 with funding provided by the Canadian Space Agency through its Government Related Initiatives Program. This report provides the SOIN Final Activity Report of project activities and accomplishments from 2007 to 2013.
