Definition of SeaWiFS:
SeaWiFS stands for Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor. It is an optical remote sensing sensor on the OrbView-2 satellite, a part of the SeaWiFs project run by NASA. The purpose of the project is to provide quantitative data on global ocean bio-optical properties to the Earth science community. The instrument was specifically designed to monitor ocean water quality and ecological characteristics such as chlorophyll-a concentration and water clarity. For this purpose, the sensor records information in the following optical bands:

Band Wavelength 1 402-422 nm 2 433-453 nm 3 480-500 nm 4 500-520 nm 5 545-565 nm 6 660-680 nm 7 745-785 nm 8 845-885 nm

SeaWiFS began scientific operations on 18 September 1997. The sensor resolution is approximately 1.1 km.
This is the common definition for SeaWiFS, other definitions can be discussed in the article
