The Norwegian Computing Center’s Remote Sensing Group (NCC) is involved in three ENVISAT AO projects. The themes of the projects correspond to key research areas in NCC: automatic detection of marine oil spill, snow monitoring for natural resource and climate applications, and land vegetation monitoring by spectrometry.
Sea Level Analyses using ENVISAT
For more than a decade remote sensing has successfully been used to monitor the ocean surface and has provided valuable information about the dynamics of the worlds oceans and the marine gravity field. Even though two satellite missions carrying radar altimeters are currently in operation, sea level variability is still observed that cannot be fully explained due to insufficient coverage.
