Sources of data on the World Wide Web on remote sensing of coastal and marine environments

The following list of data sources provides URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) or "web addresses" of a range of sites we have found particularly useful. These relate primarily to remote sensing but with the emphasis on sensors and satellites of use in coastal management or products of use to coastal managers. Compiled by Alasdair Edwards.
