Description 
Summary

Since end of 2001 the CYCOFOS HRPT ground receiving station has been providing regular (almost daily depending on the cloud cover) remote sensing SST images of the Levantine Basin and the Eastern Mediterranean. An HRPT Professional Researcher model is operated by the CYCOFOS and is capable of covering quite well in one single capture depending on the satellites orbit the entire Eastern Mediterranean and the Black sea 2-3 times per day, with a spatial resolution of about 1 km.
