... In many cases, the line between ocean and atmospheric sciences is not well defined. TOGA Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere WOCE World Ocean Circulation Experiment GOFS Global Ocean Flux Study PIPOR Program for International Polar Research GSP Greenland Sea Project Regional and process studies The above programs are linked to satellite sensors that are planned or proposed in support of these and other programs: ocean currents altimeter GEOSAT ocean currents altimeter TOPEX/Poseidon(NASA/CNES)

... File transfer needs High-resolution digital imagery from satellites - volume large ocean charts & sections - volume moderate datasets - volume moderate to large text - volume small to moderate
From page 54...
... 54 Data compression techniques are currently employed for transmission of satellite imagery. In such situations, the transmission is critically dependent upon a low bit-error rate, so that error-correcting routines are generally applied, thereby lowering the effective transmission rate.

... d. International collaboration & resource sharing Major international collaboration: Major data centers are being established (for TOGA, WOCE, GOES, PIPOR)
