General Description

 

What data/products do you use?

Data currently collected through shoreline and small boat surveys, but satellite imagery has been used to help with broad classification

When do you use this kind of dataset?

When offshore produced in transported to shore via pipeline, or operation requires construction of a terminal and has associated shipping with potential of oil spills in 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 repeated on a seasonal basis

Needs and expectations on EO data

High resolution maps that will allow characterization/
classification of inter and sub-tidal environment
