Abstract
    Aiming to use the MODIS-derived SST to improve the surface forcing of the Optos_nos model, our first task consists in a cross-comparison between satellite data, model results and in situ measurements. We note that the accuracy of the model must be improved close to the coast and that the procedure of flagging clouds must be improved before the satellite data can be used as forcing.
