Knowledge of the coastal MABL for the entire battlespace is critical for modern Navy operations. To support modern weapon and sensor systems, quantitative assessment of a number of MABL properties are needed. They include: optical depth, boundary layer depth, sea surface temperature, and surface layer temperature and moisture. These needs are even more critical in the coastal zone with the sparse surface observations away from the coast and the high temporal and spatial variability of littoral circulation systems. Satellite remote sensing is the only data source that can measure
