Dr Marie-Hélène Rio is a scientist from CLS, a subsidiary of the French Space agency CNES. She is responsible for developing and merging new algorithms to exploit Sentinel-3 data.
Dr Rio is currently at ESA working on bringing further benefits to users by combining data from different ocean sensors.
Sentinel-3 is part of the family of EU-owned satellites, which are developed and operated in the context of Copernicus – the European Union's Earth Observation and Monitoring Programme. The mission is the result of close collaboration between ESA, the European Commission, EUMETSAT, CNES, industry, service providers and data users.
