Measurements of sea surface currents to benefit Swedish GMES marine core services

The objectives of the project were to:
- Evaluate available and new methods and algorithms to retrieve information about sea surface currents from satellite data.
- Determine the operational usefulness of information about sea surface currents from satellite data for Swedish GMES marine core services.
- Increase the awareness among Swedish maritime service providers about the possibilities and limitations regarding information about sea surface currents from satellite data.
