EP023:
Impacts of Land Surface Dynamics on Water Quality: End-to-End Remote Sensing & Modeling Approach





Session ID#: 24060

Session Description:
The urban/rural freshwater systems are under increasing pressure due to frequent occurrences of extreme weather patterns and human over-exploitation of land/terrestrial/watershed resources. With the recent availability of moderate-to-high resolution suites of remote sensing satellites, including Landsat-8, Sentinel-2, Sentinel 3, and SNPP VIIRS, capable of precisely measuring water quality, it is now possible to regularly monitor coastal/inland waters nearby human settlements. This session provides a stage to research activities highlighting the use of these satellite assets and/or their integrations with modeling frameworks for operational monitoring of water quality at local/regional/global scales. More specifically, this session seeks out research activities pertaining to a) algorithm developments/validations for the retrievals of water quality indicators, b) short-term and long-term landcover and landuse changes (LCLUC) and their relationship with water quality dynamics, and c) watershed/water quality/hydrodynamic/hydrological modeling. The ultimate goal is to encourage interactions amongst hydrologists, LCLUC community, aquatic remote sensing scientists, and modeling experts.
