We are excited to share our latest video that offers a comprehensive comparison of ocean currents from North Brazil to the Gulf of Mexico, traversing the Caribbean Sea. This video uniquely juxtaposes AVISO (Archiving, Validation, and Interpretation of Satellite Oceanographic data) delayed time geostrophic currents with our cutting-edge AIS derived surface currents, providing an unparalleled view into the dynamics of this crucial maritime corridor.
Understanding the Currents
AVISO (Archiving, Validation, and Interpretation of Satellite Oceanographic data) specializes in providing geostrophic current data, utilizing satellite technology and altimetry to understand the general movement of water masses. This method offers a broader and more long-term perspective of ocean dynamics. In contrast, eOdyn’s approach, which leverages sat-AIS (Automatic Identification System) derived data, delivers a more immediate and surface-level insight into total ocean currents. eOdyn’s technology captures the nuances and subtleties of ocean dynamics in near real-time, offering a more detailed and granular view in high marine trafic density area compared to AVISO’s satellite-based, broader analysis.
Insights and Applications
This comparison is more than just a visual feat; it is a gateway to deeper insights into oceanography. For mariners and researchers, understanding these differences is crucial for navigation, safety, and environmental monitoring. eOdyn Near Real Time data provide a comprehensive view that can improve route planning, weather forecasting, and our overall understanding of marine ecosystems.
A Step Forward in Oceanographic Research
At eOdyn, we believe that the fusion of different data sources like Altimetry and AIS is key to advancing oceanographic research. We hardly work on that topic. Our commitment to innovation and accuracy drives us to continually explore new ways to understand and interpret the seas that connect us all.
We invite you to watch this compelling video and iscover how eOdyn is charting new courses in maritime understanding.
