 Monitoring of landfall site recovery and coastal vegetation

Challenge ID

C-CORE_OFF2.1

Title

Monitoring of landfall site recovery and coastal vegetation

Challenge originator:

Enterprise Energy Ireland Ltd

General Description

 

What data/products do you use?

Vegetation data currently collected through shoreline surveys, but satellite imagery has been used to help with broad vegetation classification

 

When do you use this kind of dataset?

When offshore production transported to shore via pipeline, or operation requires construction of a terminal and has associated shipping with potential of oil spills in nearshore environment

 

Characterization and vulnerability of coastline and nearshore environment

What are your actual limitations and do you have a work around? 

EO products have been used in some cases but are expensive.  Using EO products for this would still require on-the-ground validation, but if area is extensive, assessment in this way would save time and could easily be repeated on a seasonal basis.

Needs and expectations on EO data

High resolution maps that will allow characterization/  classification of coastal vegetation and coastal substrate
