    Satellite data central to ocean monitoring

    Over 95% of Earth’s water is found in our oceans, and yet sadly, oceans are under stress from climate change and pollution. Monitoring our oceans is vital for Earth’s survival and satellites are the primary means of long-term and independent observation of our vast ocean bodies and their associated coastal zones.

    OceanSat-2 data

    ESA, in collaboration with GAF AG, acquired and processed every day OceanSat-2 passes over Neutrelitz reception station from January 2016 to November 2021. All passes were systematically processed to levels 1B, 2B and 2C, and available to users in NRT (< 3 hours). Products are available in: Level 1B: Geophysical Data containing Radiance Data for all 8 Bands of OCM-2 Level 2B: Geophysical Data L2B for given Geo physical parameter. Geo physical parameters: Chlorophyll, Aerosol Depth, Different Attenuation, Total Suspended Sediments Level 2C: Georeferenced Radiance Data for given geo physical parameter. Geo physical parameters: Chlorophyll, Aerosol Depth, Different Attenuation, Total Suspended Sediments. Spatial coverage: Check the spatial coverage of the collection on a map available on the Third Party Missions Dissemination Service.
