The main objects of remote sensing are:
- weather and climate (precipitation, clouds, wind, turbulence, radiation);
- elements of the environment (aerosols, gases, electricity of the atmosphere, transfer, i.e. redistribution of a particular substance in the atmosphere);
- oceans and seas (sea waves, currents, amount of water, ice);
- ground surface (vegetation, geological exploration, resource studies, altitude).
The information obtained by means of remote sensing is in demand for many branches of science, technology and economics. The number of potential consumers of this information is constantly growing.
