Remote sensing products are essential for high-quality research into world-wide environmental problems. Satellite observation is a key tool for coastal research and management because it can provide high-resolution synoptic information needed to address many aspects of the ecological complexity and dynamics of these systems. Remote sensing products also provide key information for open-ocean research, including-climate change related issues. With the capability to archive, process and map global satellite data from multiple polar-orbiting sensors, the Radiometrics Laboratory is involved in several research programmes and projects.
- Field radionuclide measurement and concurrently Satellite data products comparison for the southern ocean.
- Dispersion of suspended matter in polluted Caribbean coastal ecosystems to assist in the design of sampling campaigns (Figure 1).
- Impact of climate change on the interannual variability of the primary production estimated from modelling and satellite data.
- Field study of coastal and open-ocean eddies supported by satellite ocean colour observations for the Mediterranean Sea (Figure 2).
