I am not sure if I can recall perfectly but somebody mentioned this in a meta posting once. Would the usage of remote sensing to calculate meteorological/oceanographical parameters be on topic ? I meant the process of deriving the values or would that belong better in a GIS SE ?

1$\begingroup$ that seems to be on topic $\endgroup$– user889Feb 7, 2015 at 2:58
2$\begingroup$ From the satellite instrumentation of TRMM the process to derive rainfall values would that be on topic ? I presume it can be split up into smaller questions and each question leading to the next. On topic ? $\endgroup$– gansubFeb 7, 2015 at 3:00
1$\begingroup$ @gansub Yes, certainly on-topic. $\endgroup$– gerrit ModFeb 7, 2015 at 20:59
$\begingroup$ I agree, on topic. Meteorology & oceanography are earth sciences & how data is collected for research in these fields is on topic. GIS is more about how data is used & presented. $\endgroup$– FredFeb 8, 2015 at 1:57
$\begingroup$ @gerrit - I have asked the question that I mentioned I would. $\endgroup$– gansubFeb 12, 2015 at 1:58

Remote sensing applications to earth or planetary sciences is on-topic.
