Japanese Ocean Flux Data sets with Use of Remote Sensing Observations (J-OFURO2)
These ocean surface flux data sets are derived primarily using data from multiple satellites. The COARE 3.0 bulk algorithm [Fairall et al. (2003)] is used in J-OFURO2 for the estimation of sensible and latent heat fluxes.
