Our understanding of the coupled land-ocean-atmosphere system is only possible through the use of satellite data. Since the 1990s, the assimilation of satellite data have dramatically improved numerical weather prediction and climate models.  I will review many of the key geophysical measurements currently being measured by satellites and show these data are fundamental to our understanding of weather and climate.
