OceanWatch - Central Pacific

March 16, 2018

Satellite data products for understanding and managing our oceans and coasts.

NOAA CoastWatch/OceanWatch provides easy access for everyone to global and regional satellite data products for use in understanding, managing, and protecting ocean and coastal resources and for assessing impacts of environmental change in ecosystems, weather, and climate.

Specific data management and processing tasks are assigned to each region. There are CoastWatch nodes (West Coast, East Coast, Great Lakes, Gulf of Mexico), to provide regional products for coastal areas and OceanWatch nodes (Central Pacific, Atlantic, PolarWatch) focused on basin-wide or global products. 

OceanWatch - Central Pacific is based at the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. Our office acquires and processes satellite information and creates a variety of satellite data products for the Pacific Ocean region. We provide an updated source of daily regional and global satellite oceanographic observations. Anyone may access data free of charge. 

Our satellite-based activities include:

  • Observation
  • Monitoring
  • Analysis
  • Data Distribution
