OS4.3Ocean Remote Sensing
|Convener: Aida Alvera-Azcárate | Co-Convener: Guoqi Han|
Advanced remote sensing capabilities provide unprecedented opportunities for monitoring, studying, and forecasting the ocean environment. An integrated approach of synthesizing remote sensing data with in situ measurements and ocean models is highly desirable, both for physical and biological oceanography and for marine gravity and geodesy on the regional, basin and global scales. This session provides a forum for interdisciplinary discussions of the latest advances in all aspects of oceanographic applications of remote sensing.
We welcome contributions on all aspects of the remote sensing of the ocean. Topics for this session include but are not limited to: physical oceanographic variability and interactions with the atmosphere; biological variability and the carbon cycle; marine gravity and space geodesy missions, and development of new techniques in ocean remote sensing. Studies that address the multiparametric nature of the ocean through the combined use of different remote sensed variables, as well as multi-platform studies that take advantage of the complementarity of satellites with other ocean observation systems are of special interest.
