Galathea 3 databank
The satellite images are collected in a databank specifically
developed for Galathea 3. Scientists at DTU Space in collaboration with
EDUSPACE have constructed the databank that contains not only the
satellite images but also online observations from the Galathea 3 during
the expedition. The online data include observation of sea temperature,
phytoplankton, air temperature and wind.
This means that one databank has been established with all the basic
parameters collected and the data are open for the schools. Three
gateways to the databank are established at

is the globe. The chosen satellite image/s are shown on the
world map and it is possible to plot the Galathea 3 route and
the actual position. It is possible to zoom in a chosen

possible to plot the route of Galathea 3 and the observed
parameters from the ship as well as coastline, ocean depth, etc.
Info on the use of Java (in Danish). In Java pupils as an
example can view an image of the sea surface temperature from
AATSR jointly with the temperature observations from sea and air
along the route.
The database contains several satellite images per region.
From Java og Database it is possible to download image for
direct use in education.
