Using remote sensing in research and monitoring of coastal and inland waters - Tiit Kutser

Seminar
Professor Tiit Kutser, Head of Remote Sensing and Marine Optics Department at Estonian Marine Institute, University of Tartu will hold an invited speaker seminar. This will be followed by Enass Said Al-Kharusi from INES giving her Half time seminar.

Tiit Kutser will give the following talk:

Using remote sensing in research and monitoring of coastal and inland waters

Remote Sensing is a potentially powerful tool in studying and monitoring of coastal and inland waters. Many parameters from water temperature, water level, ice cover, oil pollution, etc. can be mapped with remote sensing using different parts of electromagnetic spectrum. However, only visible part of spectrum can be used if we are interested in water quality parameters like phytoplankton biomass (chlorophyll-a), suspended matter, carbon content, etc. or in mapping water depth and benthic habitat cover as water is an opaque medium in all other parts of spectrum. EMI Remote Sensing Department is primarily focusing on the optical remote sensing. The examples that will be presented in the seminar include water quality (e.g. cyanobacterial blooms, different carbon fractions, etc.) remote sensing, determining the role of lakes in the global carbon cycle, benthic habitat mapping in the Baltic Sea and coral reefs, as well as bathymetry in regions not accessible by sonar systems. The sensor used range from different satellites to airborne sensors, but include also submillimetre scale laboratory imagery.

 

Enass Said Al-Kharusi, INES  PhD candidate on Remote Sensing Techniques to Assess Water Quality,  will hold the half time seminar:
