Abstract
Since the end of 1970's, measurements from space-borne satellite sensors had demonstrated that ocean color remote sensing is a powerful tool for understanding oceanic biological and physical processes. Several ocean color sensors including CZCS (Nimbus-7 Coastal Zone color scanner) have contributed much in understanding these complex oceanic processes. Since a decade, Korea has been conducting basic and applied research in the field of optical oceanography and ocean color remote sensing and designing of several indigenous satellite ocean color payloads and ground-based instruments. Of these, Korea Multi-Purpose Satellite (KOMPSAT-1) OSMI, which is worldwide ocean color monitoring for the study of biological oceanography. It generates six-band ocean color images with 800 km swath width and 1 km ground sample distance by whiskbroom scanning. In the same series, KOMPSAT-2 will carry Multispectral Camera (MSC) of very high spatial resolution (4m) and spectral resolution corresponding to Landsat-5 Thematic Mapper, which will enable enhanced understanding of intricate and striking patterns of small-scale biological and physical phenomena, especially in coastal ocean. Korea’s major ocean color mission is Geostationary Ocean Color Imager (GOCI), the first geostationary ocean color sensor, which is planned to be operated in a staring-frame capture mode onboard its Communication Ocean and Meteorological Satellite and tentatively scheduled for launch in 2008. The mission concept includes eight visible and two NIR bands, 1 km pixel resolution, and a coverage region of 2500  2500km centered at 36N and 130E. The instrument is expected to provide SeaWiFS quality observations with the frequencies in acquisition of the imagery 8 times during daytime and 2 times during nighttime. In co-ordination with the other institutes and organizations such as KORDI, MOMAF and MOST, KARI takes a major step towards designing and deploying such instruments in space orbits. Apart from the r
