Paper Abstract

The end of the cold war has seen a shift in emphasis of Navy operations from a 'blue water' strategic role to a 'brown water' coastal role. The more changeable and complex coastal environment plus the need to operate first on scene in unfamiliar areas creates a need for environmental data which is best filled by remote sensing. This paper summarizes some of the Navy's most important and enduring environmental knowledge needs. Remote sensing from satellites, aircraft and ships will provide some of this environmental knowledge.
