The ocean is a key component in the global climate system. It is a sink for carbon dioxide and increasing ocean temperatures lead to rising sea-levels. The characterisation of the status of the oceans and their circulation requires world-wide monitoring of a wide variety of ...
Earth observation agencies worldwide are moving towards a more coordinated approach to data gathering. With the increased importance of the data they provide, they are demanding improved measurement accuracy of the instrumentation on board Earth observation satellites. Satel...
