SeeWater

SeeWater is a fully customizable, online data visualization tool that displays a range of satellite-based ocean characteristics on a global map. Users can add or remove layers, zoom in/out, and change color palettes in order to view parameters such as global Sea Surface Temperature, Sea Level Anomalies, currents, atmospheric pressure, cloud cover, surface temperature, and much more.

Data comes from CLS Datastore, which selects the best datasets from AVISO, ECMWF and CMEMS, among others.

SeeWater is a great, interactive tool for helping you choose visually which products and/or geographical regions will be pertinent for your study. Datasets can then be downloaded via the CLS Datastore.
