Abstract National Program to make available, in near real-time, to the community of stakeholders, meteorological and oceanographic data, obtained in the oceanic areas of interest in Brazil. The South Atlantic and tropical Ocean is an oceanic region with an enormous lack of data. In the maritime area under which Brazil has the responsibility to generate and disseminate meteorological products, according to the International Convention for the Safety of Human Life at Sea (SOLAS), the situation is still precarious. The data collection network is restricted to some points located on islands, to sporadic measurements made by Brazilian Navy ships and voluntary merchant ships. Thus, the data is restricted to a few navigation routes that cross the South Atlantic and tropical ocean or limited to the reception of data collected by a few drift buoys. The densification of the meteorological and oceanographic data collection network, through this Project, will characterize the first Brazilian initiative, at national level, for operational monitoring, whose information will be essential for the improvement of the marine and climatological meteorological forecast over the Ocean region. South Atlantic and tropical.

Technical notes Data is received via satellites through the Argos system. The Argos program is administered jointly by the American agency, NOAA, and the French agency, CNES. This system is mounted on board the NOAA series satellites that operate in polar orbit. The data is downloaded in Toulouse, France and is made available on the GTS system. Alternatively, these data reach the CHM through INMET. The same data has also been captured directly in Brazil through satellites SCD 1 and 2 and CBERS and is made available to CHM, via FTP, by the DSA of CPTEC / INPE.
