Cooperation

Carbon Cycle

Satellite Eye collects for the Carbon Cycle Project satellite sea surface temperature, ocean color and wind maps for the project for the analysis of the ocean carbon budget. Ocean wind, sea surface temperature and air temperature from the ship collected by Risø and DMI can be viewed with the satellite images in near-real-time.

Gravity

Satellite Eye collects for the Gravity Observation Project images of sea surface temperature and ocean colour that can help guide the scientists to collect their observations at the existing interesting fronts in the ocean viewed from satellite in near-real-time. The gravity fields are observed from radar altimetry satellite images providing maps of the sea surface height. Observations of sea surface height observed on-board Galathea by the Danish Space Centre will be shown on-line in the satellite images.

St. Croix

Satellite Eye collects for the St. Croix Project optical and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images of the St. Croix Island to help identify changes in land use during time in last few decades.

Mercury

Satellite Eye collects for the Mercury in the Atmosphere Project images of atmospheric chemistry concentrations in the atmosphere. These data can be viewed together with atmospheric chemistry observations from the ship in near-real-time collected by the National Environmental Research Institute.

WINMARGIN

Satellite Eye collects for the West Indies Marine Geosciences Investigations (WINMARGIN) satellite images of the transport of river sediments from the Americas and long-range atmospheric transport from the Saharan desert in Africa to the West Indies for the understanding of the investigated sedimentation cores recordes collected by GEUS.

Greenland Climate

Satellite Eye collects for the Greenland Climate Project satellite images of the glaciers through time. This is to support the study of climate change in the Greenland area.

Bellona Climate

Satellite Eye collects for the Bellona Climate Project satellite images to characterize land use and changes in this during time. High-resolution optical images will be analyzed to give great detail in the processes due to climatic effects and the living conditions.

Solomon Birds

Satellite Eye collects for the Solomon Birds Project satellite images to help identify adequate helicopter landing sites in the densely vegetated tropical forest. Helicopter is the access route for the search for passerine birds in very remote areas that carry specific DNA evolved through time under these isolated conditions.

Sea Turtles

Satellite Eye collects for the Sea Turtles Project satellite images of sea surface temperature, ocean wind and ocean color that may help identify areas where the sea turtles are. When sea turtles have been collected and given a radio-transmitters, the traveling of the sea turtles and each individuals exact position can be viewed along with the near-real-time satellite. This will provide insight to their lives.

Oxygen in Oceans

Satellite Eye collects for the Oxygen in Oceans Project satellite images of ocean color, chlorophyll content and sea surface temperature. The daily project planning on-board will be made from the most recent near-real-time satellite images in order to search and observe the oxygen content in the most interesting parts of the ocean.

Dissolved Organic Matter

Satellite Eye collects for the Dissolved Organic Matter Project satellite images of chlorophyll and ocean color which may help identify areas with gradients in near-real-time. This may help identify interesting sampling locations. At the same time near-real-time observations from the ship collected by DMU may be viewed with the near-real-time satellite images along the cruise.

Sound in the Oceans

Satellite Eye collects for the Sound in the Oceans Project satellite images focused on areas where the large whales are living. One area is near the Azores Islands where we will check high-resolution optical images for the presence of whales. In addition the ocean chlorophyll content and sea surface temperature images may help understand the travelling of whales and dolphins observed from the ship also in the Indian Ocean, near the Solomon Islands and along the Antarctic.

Plankton Dynamics

Satellite Eye collects for the Plankton Dynamics Project satellite images of ocean surface temperature, ocean colour, chlorophyll content and wind conditions. The satellite images provide overviews useful both for the cruise planning as well as the physical and biological functioning of the plankton communities that will be investigated on-board Galathea. Near Broome the wave dynamics and phytoplankton will be investigated in detail from the ship and from satellite.

Eels Breeding

Satellite Eye collects for the project Eels Breeding in the Sargosso Sea satellite images on areas where the eels are breeding. Large gradients in sea surface temperature can be seen from the satellites as well as sea surface currents. It is interesting to compare the breeding sites of the European eel observed from the ship to the satellite images overview of the state of the physics of the ocean.

Cool-water carbonate

Satellite Eye collects for the project Cool-water Carbonate Mounds near Australia satellite images of ocean sea surface temperature, chlorophyll content and ocean wind conditions. The planning of water sampling with CTD and ADCP will be partly based on near-real-time sea surface temperature maps from satellite. The major goal of the project is to understand the cool-water carbonate sedimentation processes.

Icefish of Antarctica

Satellite Eye collects for the Icefishes of Antarctica satellite images of the sea ice near Antarctica focused on the Ross Sea where it is planned to catch icefishes if the sea ice conditions permits it. Furthermore the ice conditions near Terra Nova Base will be mapped to clarify the possibility of entering land for the project

Dinoflagellater

Satellite Eye cooperates with students and teachers from erhvervsskolen Hamlet, 2B HTX on the project 'The largest of the smallest. From Kattegat Sea to Galapagos'. The project deals with mapping of DNA in dinoflagellater collected in the Kattegat Sea and Galapagos. The students and teachers have visited Risø and learnt about satellite images and the program LEOworks from the 29.11. to 1.12.2006. The class is one of the winning high school classes from the competition by Politiken, STV/TV2 Vejret and Eksperimentarium.

Oxygen from algae

Satellite Eye cooperates with students and teachers from Borupgaard Amtsgymnasium, 2X on the project 'The oxygen production from algae in the oceans'. The project deals with the oxygen production of algae, CO2 and pH values in oceans through 50 years from Galathea 2 to Galathea 3. The study site is from Tórshavn to Nuuk. The students and teachers have visited Risø and learnt about satellite images on the 13.10.2006. The class is one of the winning high school classes from the competition by Politiken, STV/TV2 Vejret and Eksperimentarium.

Footprint of Darwin

Satellite Eye cooperates with students and teachers from Bagsværd Kostskole og Gymnasium, 2B in the project 'Determination of plants in the footprint of Darwin'. The project is about plants in Galapagos. A land-based field study will take place in Galapagos in February and March 2007. For use in the field work high-resolution satellite images will be used. Satellite Eye will help educate the class on satellite images. The class is one of the winning high school classes from the competition by Politiken, STV/TV2 Vejret and Eksperimentarium.

Galapagos plants

Satellite Eye collects for the project 'Comparative research on plant populations and plant communites in the Galapagos Islands and Isla de la Plata' satellite images of the different islands on which a field work will be conducted in February and March 2007. The images are high-resolution images, that can be used to characterize different plant zones and the development through time

Tranquebar

Satellite Eye collects for the project The Fishermen Community in Tranquebar: Anthropological investigations of socio-economic living conditions 1980-2010 satellite images of the area. The population typically lives very close to the ocean. Large parts of their urban quarters disappeared during the tsunami and 6-800 people lost their lives. The project consists of life-stories told in year 1981 and again in year 2006 on their views on changes in society, tsunami, coastal changes, cyclones, etc. The satellite images documents the changes of the coastline and coastal areas during time.
