What is measured in the oceans? Presentation of the parameters observed, collected and measured in the oceans according to the major scientific disciplines. These pages present the parameters measured according to a synthetic description by dynamically grouping together several pieces of information presented on other pages of the ODATIS site. From a page of a given parameter, direct links direct you to the data catalog.
Measuring the wide areas of the oceans in their 3 dimensions implies a great diversity of observation capabilities. The data sets and products offered by the ODATIS cluster are based on observations collected with systems deployed from ships or drifting devices, balloons, aircraft, fixed equipment on land or at sea and systems installed on satellites. These data can also be produced through shipyards and campaigns at sea.
