Remote sensing in the estuarine and coastal zones: Applications on scales of ~1 km to 100s of km


Session ID#: 29847

Session Description:
Remote sensing can capture spatial and temporal complexity in the estuarine and coastal zones that is difficult to represent with in situ observations. High-resolution wind, sea-surface temperature, sea-surface height, water velocity, and wave data are becoming increasingly available. Satellite sea surface temperature is available with <1 km resolution, satellite winds at <25 km, and satellite sea-surface height extending within 5-10 km of land. There are higher-resolution data from aircraft or land-based remote sensing, including surface currents and waves. However, existing satellite altimeters, measuring sea level variation, have data accuracy issues within <5 km of the coast and in estuaries. The upcoming SWOT (Surface Water Ocean Topography) mission (France, USA, Canada, UK) should alleviate this problem. We seek new and innovative applications of remote sensing within 1-100 kilometers of the coast and in estuaries. We welcome validation comparisons with in-situ data, but particularly encourage 1) proposed usage and expected contribution of the SWOT mission; 2) studies demonstrating specific issues with applying satellite data within 1-100 km of the coast and identifying ways forward, including recent advances in coastal/estuarine altimeter or wind retrieval; and 3) process studies or novel applications, especially use of multiple remotely sensed variables to address multidisciplinary questions.
