Event Inland and Nearshore Coastal Water Quality Remote Sensing Workshop

Goal: To bring together remote sensing data providers and expert users to improve our ability and capacity to remotely assess and monitor inland and nearshore coastal water quality. This is an exciting opportunity to collaboratively chart a course for the future of this emerging science.

Objectives: To assess existing and planned remote sensing capabilities; identify gaps relative to user needs in the acquisition, processing, distribution and utilization of remote sensing data and derived products for water quality research and applications; and formulate potential solutions to address these gaps and other related challenges.

Outcomes: Recommendations to data providers and GEO Members and Participating Organisations on short-term priorities for improving remote sensing capacity and utilization for water quality assessment and monitoring, as well as formulating short and long term strategies to identify, enable and implement enhanced capabilities.
