IS003:
From watersheds to the open ocean: advances in remote sensing for monitoring water quality, food security, ecosystems, and change


Session ID#: 29817

Session Description:
Marine, coastal, and inland waters provide a range of societal benefits including food and water supply, economic support, and ecosystem biodiversity and productivity. However, these resources are increasingly stressed due to natural and anthropogenic factors. Remote sensing from ground-based, airborne, and satellite platforms offers a unique perspective on the world's water bodies, with the ability to assess quality, safety, and change at improved temporal resolutions, and at scales that extend from inland waters to the open ocean.

Active and passive sensors with improved radiometric performance and spatial, spectral, and temporal resolutions open up possibilities for detailed quantitative understanding of various physical and/or biogeochemical processes. Recent and future advances in remote sensing include instrumentation as well as algorithm development, synergies, and applications. We welcome submissions illustrating innovative methods of processing or applying remotely sensed data that highlight benefits to society. These include measuring and monitoring water quality, food security, ecosystem biodiversity and productivity, and physical properties (e.g.: wind, salinity, and currents). Topics such as atmospheric correction, algorithm design, object detection, bio-optical modelling of optically complex waters, and generation of tools and data products best suited to end-users for effective management of water/marine resources are encouraged.
