Summer School ORSS #5 - Ocean Remote Sensing Synergy

Moulin Mer, Logonna-Daoulas, France
July 1 to 5, 2019

Over the last decade, the ocean community witnessed the launch of over 30 new ocean-related satellite missions worldwide. Plans for new satellites aimed to improve the spatial-temporal sampling, are already laid well into the foreseeable future. Today, we are already considering Petabytes of data to download, manage, analyse, and transform into accessible information. Increasing computer power and understandings of relevant physical processes are also rapidly evolving, and contribute to advances in model accuracy and resolution refinement. The different satellite sensors can be combined to provide the required high spatio-temporal sampling using physically or statistically based merging approaches.
This year, the summer school will focus on the synergy between satellite observations of the sea surface and in situ measurements of the water column.
