Ocean temperature fronts

Overview

The CLS Sea Surface Thermal Fronts are calculated using the sea surface temperature measured by satellite infrared radiometers (passive remote sensing). A canny filter is used to then compute the fronts globally.

When associated to the right dynamics , thermal front can be areas of higher primary productivity.

This product may locally be highly gappy due to the presence of clouds or missing data.
