New satellite observations are revealing rich structures of oceans and the overlying atmosphere in more detail. This paper discusses a few recent examples to illustrate the great potential satellite data offers for studying air-sea interaction and climate. The examples include air-sea phenomena near ocean fronts and those triggered by terrain, features narrow in space and poorly resolved by traditional datasets.
