Short summary
We developed a new method to create contiguous maps from sparse and/or noisy satellite observations. This approach could be used to produce retroactive or real-time estimates of environmental data observed by satellites which exhibit spatio-temporal autocorrelations. The method could be applied in a standalone mode or as part of a broader satellite data processing package. Maps produced in this way could then be incorporated into physical and biogeochemical models of the Earth system.
