SPORT FISHING EDITION

The Sport Fishing Edition includes all of the features of the Pro Edition plus chlorophyll (plankton) concentration, bathymetry (ocean depth), and sea surface height (altimetry). Fishermen use these additional types of data together with sea surface temperature and ocean currents to predict where the fish are most likely to be located.

    • image description

    Visibility is a surface weather observation that is a measure of the distance at which an object or light can be clearly discerned and refers to the transparency of air. Global surface visibility forecasts

    are providedat 3-hour intervals out 3 days. Visibility forecasts are provided at 1.0° resolution. Visibility can be displayed as nautical miles, statute miles or kilometers. Fog is a visibility of 1 kilometer or less.

    • image description
    • image description

    Tropical depressions and tropical cyclone locations and tracks are provided globally and updated every 6 hours. Hurricanes are tropical cyclones in the Atlantic Basin (Atlantic, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico) and in the Pacific east of the International Date Line.

    Typhoons are tropical cyclones over the northern Pacific west of the date line. Tropical cyclones in the South Pacific and over the Indian Ocean are just called cyclones.

  •   Sea Surface Temperature

    • image description
    • image description

    Sea surface temperature (SST) is provided globally at 0.083° resolution and updated daily. Sea surface temperature can be displayed in degrees Fahrenheit

    (°F) or degrees Celsius (°C). SST is of interest to fishermen because different species of fish prefer different water temperatures or temperature ranges.

  •   Chlorophyll (Plankton)
    • image description
    • image description

    Chlorophyll is the green color in plankton. Chlorophyll concentration is provided globally at a resolution of 0.042° and updated daily based on a 3-day period. Plankton are small organisms that are the food source for small fish, which in turn are the food source for larger fish. Fish are likely to be

    located in areas of the sea having the highest concentration of chlorophyll/plankton. The food chain follows the course of: Phytoplankton → Zooplankton → Predatory zooplankton → Filter feeders → Predatory fish

  •   Bathymetry (Ocean Depth)

    • image description
    • image description

    Ocean depth is provided globally and can be displayed in feet or meters. Bathymetry is of interest to fishermen because different species of fish tend to

    feed at different depths in the ocean. Bathymetry also affects sea height (altimetry).

  •   Sea Surface Height (Altimetry)
    • image description
    • image description

    Sea surface height or sea height (altimetry) is not the same as wave height, but is the difference in the level of large sections of the ocean caused by vertical currents called upwelling that bring nutrients up from deep waters to the surface of the ocean where these nutrients are utilized by plankton. Sea height is of interest to fishermen. Where there is an upwelling and the sea height is at a higher level than the

    surrounding areas, there is a greater likelihood of fish being present. Changes in bathymetry can affect the strength of an upwelling. For example, a submarine ridge that extends out from the coast will produce more favorable upwelling conditions than neighboring regions. Upwelling typically begins at such ridges and remains strongest at the ridge even after developing in other locations.

    Standard wind forecasts are provided at 30 nautical mile (0.5°) resolution. ClearPoint runs proprietary high resolution wind models at 15 nautical mile (0.25°), 5 nautical mile (0.083°) and 1 nautical mile (0.017°) resolution. These high resolution wind models are run in so-called “Hot Spots” or domains, which typically are located where our subscribers are sailing or racing. The 15-nm resolution wind forecasts are provided in 1-hour intervals out 24 hours and then in 3-hour intervals out 72 hours in domains that are about 8° latitude x 10° longitude in

    area. The 5-nm resolution wind forecasts are provided in 1-hour intervals out 24 hours and then in 3-hour intervals out 72 hours in domains that are about 3° x 3° in area. The 1-nm resolution wind forecasts are provided in 1-hour intervals out 36 hours in domains that are about 1° x 1° in area. Such high resolution forecasts provided on an hourly basis are of great value to the world class sailboat racers who have used them in major regattas and in recent World Championships and Olympics.
