NOAA PolarWatch is the newest satellite data distribution portal of NOAA's CoastWatch program. The portal offers a single location for federal agencies, research groups, and private industry to obtain the most recent and historical satellite observations of Arctic and Antarctic waters, including measurements of sea ice cover, ocean temperature, and winds. We will provide an overview of the data and services provided by PolarWatch with examples that demonstrate supporting safety at sea, navigation, fishing, transportation, tourism, and recreation. We will also highlight user training materials and training courses that are designed to encourage broad usage of polar satellite data.
