The near-surface layer of the ocean is a principal component in several important applications. Traditional applications such as remote sensing and air-sea coupling in numerical models have been augmented by recent developments in ocean color, acoustic sensing and near-surface biology. Remote sensing from space can be efficiently complemented with remote sensing of the sea surface from inside the ocean. Optical and acoustical methods provide exciting opportunities in this direction.
