The Spaceborne Ocean Intelligence Network (SOIN) is a six-year research and operational development project that addresses barriers to developing and implementing oceanographic applications derived from Earth-observation sensors such as RADARSAT-2 and MODIS, capabilities that will be provided by the Polar Epsilon Project, combined with existing AVHRR data. The project is 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 ongoing three-year Phase II (2010/11 to 2012/13) focuses 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 a summary of project activities and accomplishments in FY 11/12.
