Monitoring Coastal and Estuarine Water Quality Using Remote Sensing and In Situ Data

by bblevins » Tue Nov 09, 2021 2:37 pm America/New_York

NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) has opened a new open, online webinar series: Monitoring Coastal and Estuarine Water Quality Using Remote Sensing and In Situ Data (Advanced)

This 2-part, hands-on advanced training will provide participants with the skills to combine in situ measurements and optical remote sensing data, such as chlorophyll-a concentration, sea surface temperature, and suspended particulate matter, to assess water quality for their area of interest.

If you would like to join us or pass along to colleagues who will find it useful, please do so. Please see the training details and registration information below.

Thank you,

Brock

Monitoring Coastal and Estuarine Water Quality Using Remote Sensing and In Situ Data

This two-part, advanced webinar series is a follow-on to the training on coastal and estuarine water quality held in September 2021. It is a hands-on training with demos provided by instructors, followed by an hour of lab time for participants to use Level-1 MODIS and VIIRS data provided by the Ocean Biology DAAC (OB.DAAC) and SeaDAS and OCSSW software for deriving water quality parameters. These will include chlorophyll-a concentration, sea surface temperature, and suspended particulate matter from optical satellite imagery and in situ measurements using the SeaWiFS Bio-optical Archive and Storage System (SeaBASS), a public repository of in situ oceanographic and atmospheric data, and SeaDAS, a comprehensive software package for the processing, display, analysis, and quality control of remote sensing data. This training will provide participants with the skills to combine in situ measurements and optical remote sensing data to assess water quality for their area of interest.

Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal:
• Goal 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
• Target 14.2: By 2020, sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems to avoid significant adverse impacts, including by strengthening their resilience, and take action for their restoration in order to achieve healthy and productive oceans
• Goal 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all

Course Dates: November 30th and December 7th, 2021

Times: 10:00-12:00 or 14:00-16:00 EDT (UTC-4); There will be identical sessions at two different times of the day. Participants need only to register and attend one daily session.

Learning Objectives: By the end of this series, attendees will be able to:
• Select in situ water quality data from SeaBASS
• Develop algorithms from MODIS and VIIRS imagery using SeaDAS to obtain chlorophyll-a, sea surface temperature, and suspended particulate matter
• Monitor water quality in selected coastal and estuarine regions

Audience: This training series is intended for federal, state, regional, and local public and private organizations involved in water quality and estuarine ecosystem management.

Course Format: Two, 2-hour parts (with lab time)
