Data set name

Kerch Strait remote sensing dataset (2006)

Data holding centreSpace Research Institute of RAS
CountryRussian Federation  Russian Federation
ProjectWater dynamics in strait areas: impact of atmospheric and oceanic processes(Water dynamics)
Time periodApril - October 2006
Geographical area

Region of Kerch Strait - south of the Azov Sea and north-east of the Black Sea


Chlorophyll pigment concentrations in sediment; Raw temperature and/or salinity instrument output




The dataset contains fragments of (A)SAR images and corresponding Modis and AVHRR derivatives (for cloudless conditions) - sea surface temperature (SST), water-leaving radiance (WRL, RGB composites), chlorophyll-a concentration (Chl-a) images - obtained from April to October, 2006 over Kerch Strait.
