attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Sea surface temperature (SST) provides a measure of the surface ocean conditions, however no information about the subsurface ocean thermal structure (approximately the upper 50 m of the ocean) can be derived from SST alone. For instance, it is known that the oceanic skin temperature erodes when the sea surface is affected by strong winds, creating a well-mixed layer that can reach depths of several tens of meters. Moreover, warm ocean features, mainly anticyclonic rings and eddies, are characterized by a deepening of the isotherms towards their centers with a markedly different temperature and salinity structure than the surrounding waters. Several studies have shown that observations of sea surface height (SSH) are strongly correlated with the thermal structure of the upper ocean (e.g. Goni et al. 1996; Gilson et al. 1998; Mayer et al. 2001; Willis et al. 2004). Based in this virtually ubiquitous relationship, we developed a methodology to estimate fields of isotherm depth from the SHA fields derived from satellite observations.
The Tropical Cyclone Heat Potential (TCHP), is defined as a measure of the integrated vertical temperature from the sea surface to the depth of the 26°C isotherm. This parameter is computed globally from the altimeter-derived vertical temperature profiles estimates in the upper ocean (Shay et al., 2000). Different methods have been developed to calculate this vertical thermal structure of the upper ocean.
The Tropical Cyclone Heat Potential (TCHP) is made freely available by the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (www.aoml.noaa.gov/phod/cyclone) and has been funded by the NASA and NOAA at different stages of the project. The sea surface height and temperature products incorporated in the TCHP are supplied by CMEMS and Remote Sensing, USA (www.remss.com/tmi/) respectively.
