|Abstract:||This study presents the technical and scientific results obtained through a collaboration between the Institute for Environment and Sustainability (Joint Research Centre of the European Commission) and two PUMA Pilot Projects, namely the Western Indian Ocean Satellite Application Project (WIOSAP), and the Monitoring of the Oceanographic and meteorological Environment in support to the Management of Fisheries in Senegal (SEGEPS). Both projects are aiming at an optimized use of MSG satellite images to improve the management of regional fisheries and the current scientific knowledge on the natural variability of the fish stocks. A Sea Surface Temperature product from MSG is generated operationally at the native SEVIRI resolution (3 km at the SSP) and can be used to locate upwelling regions and thermal fronts for the Potentially Fishing Zones (PFZs) identification.|
