Project Description

The research of new ocean remote sensing data for operational application

Dragon-4 is a program cooperation between ESA and the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) of the P.R.
isardSAT and First Institute of Oceanography in China are leading the project “The research of new ocean remote sensing data for operational application”. The objectives of the project are:

1.Techniques for sea ice parameter extraction and sea ice monitoring using new satellite data
2.Data validation and oceanic application of new satellite altimeters and SWIM
3.Sea surface salinity algorithm based on combined active/passive microwave imagers
