1 Remote sensing of the ocean from space Remote Sensing I Lecture 11 Summer 2006

2 Overview Sea surface temperature remote sensing Mapping of ocean colour –Biologic activity Remote sensing of sea surface height / topography from altimeters –El Nino detection –Deriving ocean circulation Remote sensing of sea surface roughness from scatterometers –Retrieving wind speed over the oceans

3 MODIS / Terra: Sea Surface Temperature Gulfstream

4 Ocean colour: MERIS/ENVISAT, 443 nm

5 Ocean colour: MERIS/ENVISAT, 560 nm

6 Ocean colour: MERIS/ENVISAT, Chlorophyll

7 El Nino: Schematic

8 El Nino Indices

9 AVHRR: Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly

10 TOPEX/POSEIDON: Sea Surface Height Anomaly

11 Ocean Topography

12 Altimeter principle: TOPEX/POSEIDON TOPEX/POSEIDON Launched: 10 Aug. 1992

13 Sea Surface Height: Assimilated from TOPEX from Stammer & Wunsch
