Ocean

Marine satellite data are unique sources of continuous, highly accurate global measurements of the physical and biological state of the ocean (sea state, sea level, ocean currents, sea surface temperature, ocean colour and sea ice) and atmospheric parameters (ocean surface wind, air-sea fluxes, precipitation) that drive the ocean circulation.

The Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) provides continuous data and information about the oceans.
