We're familiar with how climate change is impacting the ocean's biology, from bleaching events that cause coral die-offs to algae blooms that choke coastal marine ecosystems, but it's becoming clear that a warming planet is also impacting the physics of ocean circulation.

Observing Phytoplankton Via Satellite

Thanks to a new algorithm, researchers at the AWI can now use satellite data to determine in which parts of the ocean certain types of phytoplankton are dominant.

Algae might be small, but when they grow out of control, forming harmful algal blooms (HABs), they can cause big problems.

The world's oceans have seen significant declines in certain types of microscopic plant-life at the base of the marine food chain, according to a new NASA study.

ESA and Airbus Defence and Space today signed a €177 million contract to develop the Jason-CS / Sentinel-6A satellite mission for Europe's Copernicus programme.

Satellites and Ocean Currents

Satellites offer a frequent overview of our entire planet - covered mostly by water - and provide valuable data to monitor and understand global ocean circulation. Understanding water currents at the ocean surface is important for many applications.
