Benefits and Challenges of Diurnal (Hourly) Ocean Color Remote Sensing: Science and Applications

Session ID#: 11210

Session Description:
Ocean color remote sensing from geostationary orbit provides the capability of high temporal resolution measurements (<hourly) that can revolutionize the scientific application and societal value of ocean color observations from space. This capability is necessary to study nearshore and shelf waters where the physical, biological and chemical processes react on short time scales, monitor water quality, detect and track coastal hazards, and improve satellite data assimilation into operational models.  We will give an update on NASA’s GEO-CAPE mission, highlight new science enabled by the Korean GOCI sensor and discuss the potential for a global constellation of Geostationary Ocean Color sensors.
