About us

Advancing research and monitoring of upper ocean processes and dynamics by synergetic use of satellite and in situ data

Research Objectives

  • Strengthen the use of available satellite and in situ ocean observations for ocean monitoring, model validation, data assimilation, and prediction
  • Support the development of future observing platforms by advancing the interpretation of satellite data in terms of geophysical quantities (like wind, wave, and current)
  • Exploit synergetic (complementary and overlapping) observational coverage to understand upper ocean processes and dynamics across all available time and space scales
