Ocean Remote Sensing Group, Applied Physics Laboratory, Johns Hopkins University

Data Center Description
Ocean remote sensing research is conducted by scientists in the John
Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) Space Department's Ocean
Remote Sensing Group to solve problems associated with civilian and
military applications of remote sensing in the marine environment. The
largest efforts have concentrated on the extraction of oceanographic
information from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery and
applications of radar altimetry. Underlying both of these efforts is a
substantial basic research program addressing the physics of microwave
scattering from the sea surface. Numerous projects associated with
applications of optical and infrared remote sensing techniques have
also been part of the research program. Sponsoring agencies have
included NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA), the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Defense Advanced
Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and various Navy offices.
