Coastal environmental mapping using Landsat data

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperConference paper

    Abstract

    With the availability of high spatial resolution data from Landsat-S and SPOT satellites remote sensing, with it's capability to provide synoptic information, is an excellent cost effective tool for coastal investigations. Applications of this data are presented and discussed in relation to the extraction of bathymétrie data; quantitative estimates of suspended sediment or chlorophyll concentrations; dispersion of effluent discharges; dispersal of river discharges; estimation of sea surface temperature; and, monitoring of coastal circulation using suspended material in the surface as a passive tracer.
