Paper Abstract

A specially designed satellite receiving system for NOAA/AVHRR and FY-1C/MVISR started its operation in March 2002 at NPEC (Northwest Pacific Region Environmental Corporation Center, Toyama, Japan) envisaging the remote sensing application for marine pollution monitoring. While NOAA series and FY-1C/D are meteorological satellites and not marine pollution monitoring satellites, they are operational. By operating direct receiving system, we became privileged user like satellite owners and, in order to overview its feasibility, effectiveness or constraints, we implemented a conceptual analysis of overall space/ground system for satellite marine pollution monitoring.
