Remote sensing of oceans for climate studies: Some Indian experiences

P.S. Desai

Abstract



Monitoring of the state of the oceans is a vital requirement for understanding climate, and this is particularly true in the Indian monsoon region. Satellite remote sensing observations can provide a cost-effective means of monitoring several oceanic parameters of relevance to climate. A resume of currently available satellites and future possible satellites for this purpose is given and is followed by a brief overview of the Indian efforts in this area
