Ocean

The comprehensive aerial coverage of the oceans, provided by satellite monitoring, has a considerable advantage over the isolated point observations possible on the surface by ship or buoy.

The key products for ocean monitoring are sea levels measured by altimetry instruments; sea surface temperature derived from image data, and detection of changes in sea-ice cover.

The OSI SAF provides comprehensive information on the ocean-atmosphere interface-requirements of both meteorology and oceanography.
