Satellite sensing systems offer new capabilities for obtaining synoptic data for use in understanding the dynamics of the ocean. While satellites have expanded our potential for exploring the ocean, they have also increased the demand for extensive in-situ measurements to calibrate the remotely observed data. This brief covers work and requirements for remote sensing of large-scale ocean processes, warm-core rings (and the need for in-situ corroborating observations), the World Ocean Circulation Experiment, and new moored current and density profiler.
