Regional oceanographic studies rely on in situ data. However, sampling design strategies for the collection of oceanographic data are not always straightforward, particularly in regions of complex bathymetry. Here we present a pilot study methodology that uses remotely sensed sea surface temperature data to generate coarse resolution surface temperature fields suitable for forcing a regional numerical circulation model. The model is then used to help identify the major surface and interior oceanographic features in the region and hence determine the most suitable locations to deploy instrumentation. Such pilot studies are uncommon in regional oceanographic research and here we demonstrate an effective, low-cost pilot study methodology.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
