The ISRO's oceansat-2 is doing great job beaming out high quality images. After Chandrayaan -I 's finding of water on moon, ISRO is all geared up to make more Impacts(ofcourse not on moon till Chandrayaan -II). ...

India's Oceansat-2 and other six nano satellites for international customers were placed by the  Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C14) launched from Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR, Sriharikota on September 23, 2009   in the desired orbit. All the instruments onboard Oceansat-2 are working satisfactorily. 

Oceansat-2 payloads are providing good quality data

All the three payloads on-board the Oceansat-2, namely 

  • Ocean Colour Monitor,
  • Scatterometer,
  • Radio Occultation Sounder for Atmospheric Studies,

have been successfully turned on providing good quality data.

The Ocean Colour Monitor (OCM), a multi-spectral imaging radiometer, provides information on chlorophyll concentration, and helps locating Potential Fisheries Zones. The Scatterometer, an active microwave sensor, facilitates retrieval of sea-surface wind speed and direction, and monitoring polar sea-ice. The Radio Occultation Sounder measures the parameters pertaining to lower atmosphere and ionosphere The data provided by the different sensors on-board Oceansat -2, will also facilitate monitoring of turbidity and suspended sediments, sea-state and sea-surface winds, and meteorological/climatological studies. The satellite collects data over the entire globe once in two days.
