The processing of remotely sensed ocean colour data into useful bio-optical products requires multiple processing stages that account for a host of optical processes that determine the relationship
Developing a generic tool for generation of System Vicarious Calibration gains for Ocean Colour missions.
This study investigated novel methods of calibration for the Copernicus Sentinel-3 OLCI and SLSTR instruments.
Improving cloud detection in coastal regions for S3 SLSTR SST products.
Drs Michael Schaale & Thomas Schroeder developed methods to use S3 Ocean Colour data in complex coastal marine environments.
Blake Schaeffer talks about an app his agency has developed, which provides Sentinel-3 data to water quality managers.
EUMETSAT plays a key role monitoring wildfires, biomass burning, vegetation, land temperature, and even soil moisture, from space.
