General Description

 

What data/products do you use?

Models, aerial surveillance, satellite imagery

When do you use this kind of dataset?

To monitor coastal erosion, freshwater run-off and other dynamics that can influence currents and sedimentation in the nearshore environment

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

Acquiring data of this type is difficult and expensive, requires modeling and in-situ data validation

Needs and expectations on EO data

High resolution imagery capable of detecting and tracking plumes and oceanic fronts
