 Map coastal habitat and built environment/settlement sensitivity to strengthen tactical oil spill response and preparedness

 

Challenge ID:

HCP-4202

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Map coastal habitat and built environment/settlement sensitivity to strengthen tactical oil spill response and preparedness.

Theme:

ON 4.2: Environmental monitoring - Continuous monitoring of changes throughout the lifecycle

Consortium Lead:

Hatfield

Interviewed Company:

Hatfield

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Need inventory of coastal habitat and existing infrastructure to support preparedness and oil spill mitigation.

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Maintaining up-to-date and accurate environmental sensitivity information to support emergency response and management activities. Coastal zone is highly dynamic and coastal features and patterns of land use and settlement can change rapidly.

Thematic information requirements:

Land cover

Land use

Distribution of habitat and biodiversity

Terrain information

Topographic information

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Use existing topographic data and supplement with satellite image interpretation and field surveys. Follow applicable mapping standards (global or national).

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

Application of high-resolution seasonal optical imagery analysis/interpretation.

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

Methods are well developed. Systematic analysis is perceived to be costly.
