Tracking planes

I have never understood how GSAT can track planes over the ocean. The coverage map does not include many marine areas. Is it because planes are flying and boats are at sea level?  Or is it that the sat coverage will only be over land.  The last time I asked this question some jackass pointed out that it is satellite so of course it would work.  Can someone enlighten me?

Thanks Etolin
