Oceansat-2 beamed three images capturing a large swathe of land and water bodies from Kashmir to Maldives Island, including Arabian Sea on Thursday.

They were received at National Remote Sensing Centre’s(NRSC) Earth Station at Shadnagar at 12.40 p.m. The images showing ocean features and cloud formation were “very good.” The data were processed at the Earth Station and the product was later made available to the users, according to NRSC sources.
