Earth’s oceans are as complex as they are deep, and SSAI places a special focus on researching and modeling changes in our oceans. We provide lead bio-optical algorithm support for ocean science teams, as well as lead expertise for sea-surface temperature retrievals from space-based instruments. SSAI has collaborated with our customers to study ocean color, chlorophyll, turbidity, sedimentation, and coral reef bleaching investigations. We also look at the relationship between the ocean and the atmosphere, and we support one of the only ocean platforms that take continuous atmospheric measurements. We provide field campaign support for in-situ ocean observations and data acquisition, and we complement those measurements with data from satellites to bring us closer to understanding ocean systems.
