Observation from space of radiation reflected, scattered or emitted in various regions of the electromagnetic spectrum can yield information about the structure of the earth's atmosphere and oceans, which is of importance for climate research. The accuracy of remote sounding observations of atmospheric temperature is reviewed, plans for improved radiation budget observations are mentioned and new applications of active microwave measurements, the scatterometer and the radar altimeter, are described.
