And yes, it’s again MATLAB; I am assigned to practice the mapping and plotting process in MATLAB as my first step of my internship. It’s quite interesting to make a map of the physical properties of sea water, like temperature, salinity, chlorophyll, etc.; sometimes it seems difficult due to use different kinds of functions with broader range. Anyhow, I am gathering all the codes quickly to make map. I have gotten all the two months data from the “SailBuoy” which already sailed in fixed area of Gulf of Mexico. SailBuoy is the latest ocean observing instrument to supply the real time data instantly; this unmanned vehicle would be the most effective instrument to collect the in situ data in the upcoming days. Without going to deep sea; we are getting the current temperature, salinity, oxygen, etc., in short time. Also, the scope of comparing remote sensing data is now widen than previous time because the possibility of track a concerned area continuously with this controlled sea going vehicle.
Today, no more, this is just a beginning; expect to write more with my new analysis and results within a short time.
