The Seminar is being held in Room 1010 (Jasmin) – Integrated mechanical engineering building. Click here for the campus map.

When Apollo 11 landed on the Moon in July 20, 1969, some of oceanographers imagined global view of oceans from a satellite in a day. Since then, over 6000 satellites were launched for specific missions, and they have been used to understand many phenomena in better spatial and temporal resolutions. During mu talk, different scales of phenomena will be discussed in terms of satellites measurements, applications and implications of those observations, etc. However, most of presentations will be about meso-scale phenomena such as ocean eddy, front and upwelling.  The importance of these meso-scale events is that their formations and changes impact on ocean ecosystem changes. In addition, micro-scale remote sensing based on my lab’s developments will be also discussed. Seeing is Believing!
