Remote sensing techniques appear to be the most efficient way to monitor Tropical Cyclones (TC), as these low pressure systems evolve in data-sparse oceanic regions. IFREMER team is working on algorithms to retrieve geophysical parameters over TC. Recent work has been devoted to the use of L-band radiometer and C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) for providing an estimate of the ocean surface wind speed. CyclObs aims to present this unique catalogue of measurements.
