Oceansat-2 OCM-2 NRT Data
Jan-2016



Oceansat-2 (a follow-on of IRS-P4/Oceansat-1) is an Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) mission focused on oceanography and sea-ice monitoring, surface winds and ocean surface strata, ocean colour, suspended sediments, atmospheric aerosols, chlorophyll concentrations, phytoplankton blooms, the identification of potential fishing zones and assessment of primary productivity, among other applications. ESA started acquiring OCM-2 data operationally at the Neustrelitz ground station in Germany from the 1st of January 2016, providing coverage over the North Sea, northern Mediterranean Sea, and part of the Atlantic Ocean. Access is provided in near-real time (<3 hours) through the ESA TPM scheme. Read more
