Observing the ocean from space

Remote Sensing  stands for all measurement techniques which observe processes on the Earths’ surface from a large distance. For the ocean surface it is possible to measure sea surface temperature, chlorophyll-a concentration and turbidity from space by means of satellites or airplanes.. Sea state and surface currents can be measured by radar instruments mounted on airplanes, satellites or land stations.
