|Abstract:||Remote sensing from Earth¿s orbit provides a novel view of the coastal and marine environment, expanding synoptically in situ information. Optical, thermal and structural properties of the sea surface ¿ detectable by observations in the visible, infrared and microwave regions of the electromagnetic spectrum - allow to assess the concentration of water constituents, the temperature of water masses and the roughness of the air-water interface. Such parameters allow to define the main ecological provinces of an entire basin, such as the Mediterranean Sea, and to trace its ecological dynamics, over a wide range of space and time scales. Further, the comparison of current and historical, statistical data can help in the assessment of environmental accidents or in the ensuing remediation practices.|
