Future research efforts to gain a greater understanding of the ocean and its processes will rely increasingly on the use of satellite data. New and more sophisticated satellites will dramatically increase the types and amount of satellite imagery data sets available to the marine community. This collection of summaries for a March 1989 MIT Sea Grant/Marine Industry Collegium meeting addresses dissemination of the vastly increased data by NASA and NOAA, artificial intelligence under development to assist in data review, and research into data assimilation coupled to the development of ocean circulation models. The final summary looks at future satellite systems to be deployed.
