The SALMON Project

The Sea-Air-Land Modeling and Observing Network (SALMON) Project is located at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks, Alaska. In cooperation with other institutes, the SALMON project is providing continuous real-time or near real-time observations of physical oceanographic properties and linking these with models to provide ocean forecasts in much the same way that weather forecasts are made.

Currently specializing in HF radar surface current mapping, moorings, satellites, and education, we hope that our observations and forecasts will enhance and protect the livelihoods of those who use Alaskan waters and depend on its ecosystem for food, livelihood, recreation, and transportation.
