        Improving knowledge of metocean conditions is crucial to optimise the design of renewable energy recovery systems such as floating wind turbines. Indeed, such machines can be exposed to extreme winds and waves in storms, which can jeopardize their mechanical structure. A detailed knowledge of meteoro-oceanic conditions is also necessary for fatigue calculations and the planning of marine operations. It is therefore essential to better understand and characterise these phenomena, which are very difficult to observe with in-situ instruments. To overcome this, remote sensing means deployed from terrestrial or satellite supports are promising alternatives.
