Oceans cover 71% of Earth’s surface and are vital for our survival. But they are under stress from climate change, pollution, and ocean acidification, which all affect ecosystems and biodiversity. UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14 – Life below water – focuses on the conservation and sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources. With its fleet of Earth observation satellites, ESA watches over the ocean to support humanity to monitor and protect the environment, as well as to adapt to any changes. From temperature to wave height, through sea level, sea ice, saltiness, and phytoplankton, these satellites take stock of the ocean in many different ways. ESA also supports over 50 projects that directly contribute to SDG14, a few of which we present in this article.
