Remote sensing of coastal areas requires multispectral satellite images with a high spatial resolution. In this sense, WorldView-2 is a very high resolution satellite, which provides an advanced multispectral sensor with eight narrow bands, allowing the proliferation of new environmental monitoring and mapping applications in shallow coastal.

Interests: ocean and land remote sensing; satellite radar altimetry; water level; coastal zone; inland waters Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals Special Issue in Remote Sensing: Sentinel-3 Satellites: A Three-sensor Mission to Observe the Physical, Bio-optical and Biogeochemical Properties of Marine/Water Bodies.

Wang’s specialties are terrestrial remote sensing and modeling in natural resources analysis and mapping. He has published more than 50 peer-reviewed journal articles, 70 abstracts and conference papers, and contributed more than 20 peer-reviewed book chapters.

He also edited Remote Sensing of Coastal Environments (CRC Press ). Coastal Zone Management: Global Perspectives, Regional Processes, Local Issues brings together a vast range of interdisciplinary data on coastal zones in a concise, yet exhaustive format that will be useful to students, researchers, and teachers.

The book contains several focused sections, all of which include individual chapters written by subject experts with considerable experience in their. Quantifying coastal change is essential for calculating trends in erosion, evaluating processes that shape coastal landscapes, and predicting how the coast will respond to future storms and sea-level rise, all critical for U.S.

coastal communities. Rapid developments have occurred in remote-sensing technologies during the 21st century. This paper uses the Special Issue of the International Journal of Remote Sensing on Remote Sensing of the Coastal Marine Environment to highlight recent advances in knowledge of remote sensing of the coastal zone and to define a series of priorities where future research into the application should be addressed.

Advances were identified in the benefit of high spatial and spectral resolution Cited by: Coastal Zones: Solutions for the 21st Century bridges the gap between national and international efforts and the local needs for actions in communities where coastal zone challenges are faced daily.

The solution-oriented approach covers issues of coastal zone. The aquatic coastal zone is one of the most challenging targets for environmental remote sensing. Properties such as bottom reflectance, spectrally diverse suspended sediments and phytoplankton communities, diverse benthic communities, and transient events that affect surface reflectance (coastal blooms, runoff, etc.) all combine to produce an optical complexity not seen in terrestrial or open Manufacturer: Springer.

This book is geared for advanced level research in the general subject area of remote sensing and modeling as they apply to the coastal marine environment.

The various chapters focus on the latest scientific and technical advances in the service of better understanding coastal marine environments for their care, conservation and management.

The case studies reviewed suggest that wider use of remote sensing in tropical coastal zone management is limited by (1) factors that affect data availability, such as cloud cover and sensor. The text illustrates the latest developments in active remote sensing, hyperspectral remote sensing, high spatial resolution remote sensing, the integration of remote sensing and in situ data, and covers the effects of land-cover and land-use change on coastal environments.5/5(1).

To meet the requirements of this emerging discipline, Physical Processes in the Coastal Zone: Computer Modelling and Remote Sensing integrates basic physical processes with extensive information from remote sensing systems such as those on aircraft and spacecraft.

The book is intended for researchers, academics, graduate students, NGOs, and government actors including those who work in development, environment, and policy implementation.

It is suitable supplemental reading for students in courses related to the Brand: Springer International Publishing. The aquatic coastal zone is one of the most challenging targets for environmental remote sensing.

Properties such as bottom reflectance, spectrally diverse suspended sediments and phytoplankton communities, diverse benthic communities, and transient events that affect surface reflectance (coastal blooms, runoff, etc.) all combine to produce an optical complexity not seen in terrestrial or open.

In the first part several conceptual and technical issues of applying remote sensing and geospatial technologies in the coastal environment are examined.

The second part showcases some of the latest developments in the use of remote sensing and geospatial technologies when characterizing coastal waters, submerged aquatic vegetation, benthic. Passive ocean color remote sensing from satellites began with the the Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS), which was launched in CZCS was a multi-spectral sensor, meaning that it had only a few wavelength bands with bandwidths of 10 nm or more.

After the phenomenal success of that "proof of principle" sensor, numerous other multispectral. Complete with representative case studies, this authoritative resource provides a timely snapshot of the wide range of remote sensing applications in coastal issues to enhance the understanding of.the coastal zone authored by 30 scientists from 9 universities and academic institutions.

The papers cover several different topics in remote sensing applications including optical properties of coastal waters, new technologies for in situ remote sensing andCited by: 1.The aquatic coastal zone is one of in all probability probably the most troublesome targets for environmental distant sensing.

Properties reminiscent of bottom reflectance, spectrally quite a few suspended sediments and phytoplankton communities, quite a few benthic communities, and transient events that affect flooring reflectance (coastal blooms, runoff, and so forth.) all combine to provide.
