From Catchments to Open Ocean: Advances in Remote Sensing for Supporting Sustainable Oceans II Posters

Session ID#: 93228

Session Description:
Marine and coastal waters are home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, and they provide important ecosystem services and socio-economic benefits. These same systems are increasingly stressed due to climatic and anthropogenic pressures, affecting biodiversity, productivity, and the resilience of services derived from them. Remote sensing from ground-based, airborne, and satellite platforms offer unique perspectives on the world’s water bodies, with the ability to assess many indicators and variables at improved temporal resolutions, and at scales extending from inland waters to the open ocean. Remote sensors with improved radiometric performance and spatial, spectral, and temporal resolutions offer a range of applications - from improving our understanding of physical to biogeochemical processes, to generalising the usefulness of modelling tools beyond in situ measurements. With a focus on wider societal benefits, we welcome submissions illustrating innovative processing or application of remotely sensed data, including data from imaging spectrometers and the European Space Agency Sentinels. Themes include marine ecosystem modelling, water quality, food security, biodiversity and productivity, and measuring of physical properties (e.g. wind, temperature, currents, sea state). Topics including atmospheric correction, model development, object detection, bio-optical modelling of optically complex waters, and generation of tools and data products towards achieving UN Sustainable Development Goals are encouraged. Ultimately, the chairs hope this session facilitates discussions on how to encourage and optimize the use of remote sensing data to increase our understanding (and thus decision-making ability) around fresh water and marine ecosystems within the context of increasing anthropogenic pressures.
