Dr Shubha Sathyendranath is a scientist in the Remote Sensing Group at Plymouth Marine Laboratory.

Dr Sathyendranath's research interests include ocean colour modelling, spectral characteristics of light penetration underwater, bio-optical properties of phytoplankton, modelling primary production, bio-geochemical cycles in the sea, climate change, biological-physical interactions in the marine system, ecological provinces in the sea, ecological indicators and phytoplantkon functional types.

Projects

Ocean color and biogeochemistry

Ocean color and biogeochemistry (CBIOMES)

Contact: Dr Shubha Sathyendranath

Earth observation of ocean color remains our only window into the pelagic ecosystem at synoptic scales. It is a rich source of data, and...
