GEO.- Global Earth Science

These global pages provide links to web sites which view the earth and its surface environment as a whole and through satellite observation, from the outside. This is a rapidly expanding field of science. On these pages you will find information on global climatic and environmental change, as well as on many other daily global events.

Introduction- a brief introduction and explanation of what is available.

Global links classified by Dewey Decimal System.

SeaWiFS Project (Goddard Space Center). The purpose of the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) Project is to provide quantitative data on global ocean bio-optical properties to the Earth science community. Subtle changes in ocean color signify various types and quantities of marine phytoplankton (microscopic marine plants), the knowledge of which has both scientific and practical applications.

Earth observational SAR satellites - 1.The European Space Agency's Earth RemoteSensing Satellites(ERS) 2.The National SpaceDevelopment Agency of Japan's Japanese EartResources Satellite (JERS-1) 3.The Canadian Space Agency'RADARSAT Satellite
Each of these agencies has built Earth orbiting satellites which carry a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) instrument to study and monitor the Earth and its global climate.
