[Résumé disponible seulement en anglais]
In order to verify the ability of RADARSAT-1 images to detect mesoscale oceanic features and the possible link of these oceanographic patterns with jack mackerel (Trachurus murphyi) distribution in the waters off central Chile, a project was developed as part of the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing Globesar-2 program. The combined use of simultaneously acquired RADARSAT-1, AVHRR sea surface temperature (SST), SeaWiFS Chlorophyll a concentration (Chl), TOPEX/ERS altimeter and ERS-2 catterometer wind data greatly enhanced SAR imaging capabilities for the detection of oceanic features. Results show that detection of coastal wind-driven upwellings, eddies, frontal boundaries and phytoplankton blooms is possible using SAR imagery, given the proper environmental conditions. Results also suggest that jack mackerel distribution coastal resources is mainly associated with frontal boundaries, upwelling waters and high chlorophyll concentrations detected by the remotely sensing images.©2005 Universidad de Concepción.Facultad de Ciencias Naturales y Oceanográficas
