Abstract: 

Remote sensing can now be used for tracking marine microbial ecosystem dynamics and their impact on global biogeochemical cycles. Remote sensing instruments exploit electromagnetic radiation to study surface processes on earth. One example uses the color of ocean water to estimate the amount of phytoplankton, suspended sediment, and dissolved organic material.
