Abstract

Satellite data on sea surface temperature (SST), visible and infrared imagery as well as altimetry and radar measurements were used to monitor different parameters of the Caspian Sea. Interannual variability of sea level (1993–2015) and SST (1982–2015) is considered. The elements of mesoscale water dynamics (vortices, jet-like flows, fine structure of upwelling frontal zone, internal waves, etc.) are discussed and examples of oil pollution are shown.
