Abstract: A number of visible remote sensing satellites have been observing the Gulf of Alaska and its watersheds for the past five years and will continue to make observations into the future. Much of the data is available through NASA; however, the data is not easily accessible, fully quality controlled, or necessarily the variables of interest. This synthesis proposal aims to: (a) determine which products would be useful to resource managers and scientists, (b) develop a system to process and provide the existing and future satellite data in a format useful to most users, and (c) provide quality control. The satellite imagery covers all zones described in the GEM Program Document, but this proposal focuses on the oceanic components. The work is a collaborative effort led by the Kachemak Bay Research Reserve with the University of Alaska Fairbanks providing processing facilities.
