Remote sensing in geology is remote sensing used in the geological sciences as a data acquisition method complementary to field observation, because it allows mapping of geological characteristics of regions without physical contact with the areas being explored. About one-fourth of the Earth's total surface area is exposed land where information is ready to be extracted from detailed earth.

ESA's Soil Moisture Ocean Salinity (SMOS) Earth Explorer mission is a radio telescope in orbit, but pointing back to Earth not space. Its Microwave Imaging Radiometer using Aperture Synthesis (MIRAS) radiometer picks up faint microwave emissions from Earth's surface to map levels of soil moisture, sea surface salinity, sea ice thickness and others geophysical variable such as wind speed over. These papers covered applications such as soil moisture, flood monitoring, radio frequency interference, roughness correction, ocean salinity, sea ice thickness, and calibration efforts.

However, scientists on ships can use remote-sensing data to find blooms and identify the species of phytoplankton in a bloom. (There is a particular kind of phytoplankton called blue-green algae, but even though this bloom is a shade of bluish-green, that doesn't mean that it's composed of this type of phytoplankton.).
