OS023 – Oceanography from Space: Applications for Satellite-based Ocean Observations
The capability to remotely estimate various ocean properties from satellites is continuously increasing in maturity and scope. Sea surface temperature, sea surface height, ocean vector winds and chlorophyll concentration are now available on a routine and sustainable basis. These products are becoming integral to operational applications for routine and event-driven environmental assessments, predictions, forecasts and management, and represent a huge potential for contributing to societal needs and the Blue Economy. We invite presentations of studies that have used satellite-derived estimates of oceanic, coastal and inland water properties in an operational application, be it for public or commercial use. We specifically encourage presentations that highlight the methods employed, lessons learned in overcoming the challenges encountered, and socio-economic implications of the work.
