The mission's main objective in support to the marine environment is to determine parameters such as sea-surface topography, sea-surface temperature and ocean surface colour. It provides two day global coverage optical data (with two satellites), as well as altimetry measurements, for sea and land applications with real-time products delivered in less than three hours. The instruments also provide a view on the atmosphere, including information on air quality and fires. The satellites are operationally managed from the EUMETSAT Sentinel-3 Marine Centre.
