MONCOZE: Monitoring the Norwegian Coastal Zone Environment

It is essential to have the correct hydrography and transport magnitudes of the AW and freshwater in order to obtain a reliable description of the Norwegian Coastal Current.

Regular validation of the ocean models (in off-line mode) has played an essential role for the operation of MONCOZE. Although the time of formation and location of eddies are not always in agreement with for instance observations from satellites, it is mandatory that the models have correct forcing fields, reliable water masses, frontal locations and strength of topographic steering.  In turn, the mean and eddy kinetic energy can be realistically described (Røed and Fossum, 2004).

OC-CCI: The ESA Ocean Colour Climate Change Initiative

The ESA has initiated ClimateChange Initiatives for all Essential Climate Variables. the Ocean Colour CCI is the only one of them that related to a "living" variable.

The Ocean Colour CCI (OC_CCI) project focuses on the Ocean Colour ECV encompassing water-leaving radiance in the visible domain, derived chlorophyll and inherent optical properties and will utilise data archives of from ESA’s MERIS and NASA’s SeaWiFS, MODIS and possibly CZCS (after careful evaluation) sensors archives.

MARSAIS: Demonstrating environmental products based on EO data

A marine SAR analysis and interpretation system providing information about ocean winds, waves, currents, internal waves, oil spills as well as synergies between satellite sensor data.

MARSAIS (Marine SAR Analysis and Interpretation System) is an integrated information system for processing and information extraction from different types of Earth Observation data. By means of validated algorithms and models, MARSAIS generates a suite of quality controlles coastal zone products with information on sea state, currents and pollution. Products are then delivered through a web based User Interface.

The main components of MARSAIS are the MARSAIS Data Base, the MARSAIS Toolkit, and the MARSAIS User Interface.

NORMAP: Norwegian Satellite Earth Observation Database for Marine and Polar Research

Creating a data repository for Nordic and Arctic regions for Earth Observation data from polar orbiting satellites, serving research and application in marine, polar and climate sciences. 

By 2020 Norway aims to be an internationally leading country in the integrated use of satellite Earth Observation data for: (i) research and application targeting the environmental, ecosystem and climate changes in the Nordic and Arctic regions, and (ii) knowledge based support to management and industry.
