Short summary
The Spanish Institute of Oceanography supports different operational programmes in order to observe and measure ocean characteristics. Their combination allows responses to ocean research activities and marine ecosystem management, as well as official agency requirements and industrial and main society demands. All these networks are linked to international initiatives, framed largely in supranational Earth observation sponsored by the United Nations and the European Union.
