About SWOT

SWOT is an ambitious satellite mission, providing breakthrough in scientific and applications fields, allowing the collection of unprecedented observations of the world’s oceans and terrestrial surface waters. Beyond the scientific contribution to a better understanding of the water cycle, SWOT could have an economic and social impact with the provision of information on freshwater resources.

Bridging the gap between remote sensing experts, hydrologists and operational agencies is one of the objectives of the CNES SWOT downstream program. Within this objective, the partnership with South America scientists and stakeholders is a crucial driver of the SWOT science and application programs”Selma Cherchali , CNES Earth Observation Programme manager
