The surfer waits for me, the sailor fears me, CFOSAT measures me. Who am I? The wave, of course! The CFOSAT satellite is the result of an emblematic cooperation between CNES and the Chinese space agency (CNSA). It has been put into orbit to study the interactions between wind and waves on the surface of the oceans. The aim is to refine marine weather forecasts and to gain a better understanding of climate mechanisms. Illustration by Thomas Hayman.
